UnionsACT is proud to support the 2016 joint election statement on homelessness and affordable housing, coordinated by ACTCOSS and ACT Shelter.

Unions in Canberra have campaigned for many years to improve housing affordability, and to decrease homelessness. Housing stress caused by unaffordable housing causes substantial financial, social, relationship and health pressures for working people, their families and the community generally.

UnionsACT adds our voice to the calls from the community sector and industry bodies for ACT political parties, and the next ACT Government, to do more to address the affordable housing challenge.
