Tomorrow, Wednesday 29th March 2006, sees the Victorian trade union movement lift its campaign against John Howards IR laws to a higher level.
All unions are sending their shop stewards and delegates to a mass meeting at:
Wednesday 29th March 2006
Dallas Brooks Hall
This will be followed by a march through the city to the Liberal Party Headquarters at 104 Exhibition St, Melbourne.
VTHC Secretary, Mr Brian Boyd said today: The mass meeting and march is timely as the Howard governments draconian and extreme I.R. laws have kicked in this week.
We will be putting to the delegates to go back to their workplaces and communities to promote the huge national stopwork and rally planned for Wednesday 28 June.
2006 is the year of the hard slog in terms of the campaign against the IR laws.”
We need to maintain our presence on the streets of Melbourne and also hold the line in our workplaces, in order to build the campaign to get rid of the Howard government in 2007, added Mr Boyd.
