BACKGROUND:

Australian Union’s campaignBuild A Better Future is focused on the following six points:

  • Workers Rights – protecting wages, conditions including penalty rates, and campaigning for secure jobs;
  • Defending Medicare – protecting Medicare, stopping new fees for visiting the doctor and properly funding hospitals;
  • Highest Quality Education – restoring funding to schools, TAFE and ensuring we never have $100,000 university fees;
  • Public ownership of public services – proper funding to make them work, ending privatisation which has brought job cuts, higher prices and helped only the companies running them;
  • A Secure Retirement – decent pensions and superannuation;
  • A Fair Go For All – supporting our industries generating skilled jobs, making multinationals and the wealthy pay fair taxes.
