National Day of Action – 4 March 2015

TCFUA members are joining a nationwide day of action on 4 March in protest at the Federal Liberal Government’s policies which are attacking our rights at work and living standards.

Protests will take place in major cities around the country on 4 March to show Tony Abbott and the Government that we will fight to protect our rights and standard of living.

Workers want an Australia where our employers and all governments commit to:

• Respect workers’ rights to a strong minimum wage, penalty rates and representation in the work place
• Support the creation of good secure employment where, for example, all workers whether casual, part-time or full    time, have rights
• Support Medicare, our free and universal health system. We do not want to Americanise our health care system
• Support high quality, accessible and affordable education for all, not $100,000 degrees and a gutted TAFE system
• Ensure we all have dignity when we retire through superannuation and a pension safety net
• Support our public services and stop privatising our assets
• Support for the least fortunate in our communities
• Ensure everyone pays their fair share of tax, especially corporations and those doing well

We need you there!

Start encouraging your friends, family, neighbours and co-workers to join us... because the bigger the crowd, the stronger the message we send. Let’s make it crystal clear to the Coalition Government and their big business supporters: we didn’t vote for these cuts and we won’t sit back while they attack our living standards.
