Technical workers at Telstra workers need your support. They are attempting to negotiate a new Enterprise Agreement, however company management is insisting on offering a lower pay rise to workers on the union agreement compared to those they lured on to a non-union agreement under the WorkChoices regime.
A public rally will be held outside Telstra headquarters Stirling St Perth at 12pm on Tuesday 6th April during a nation-wide 24hr stoppage of Telstra workers. Community members are invited to attend the rally which will be attended by the workers, their families and supporting unions.

I was pleased to be able to march on Saturday at the Walk Against Warming as part of the climate emergency contingent calling for 100% renewable energy by 2020, no emissions trading, climate justice for the third world and phase out coal. 90,000 people around Australia was a fantastic beginning to the global day of action.
Here are some photos of the December 5 rally for refugees held in the lead up to Human Rights Day. I spoke at the rally on behalf of the Maritime Union of Australia, of which I am a proud member.
