This article was a “Stop the War on Workers” leaflet distributed by Spirit of Eureka in a number of capital cities, March 9th.
THE WORKING PEOPLE OF AUSTRALIA ARE UNDER ATTACK!
- Fair Work Commission’s decision to cut Sunday penalty rates
- Reintroduction of the ABCC
- CUB dispute
- China Australia Free Trade Agreement
- 2016 Building Code…the list goes on!
All these attacks are aimed at one thing…destroying the hard fought for pay and conditions of generations of Australian workers, and their unions!
BIG BUSINESS AND THEIR ASSOCIATIONS ARE BEHIND THE ATTACKS!
It’s not just Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and the Liberals, or a handful of crossbench senators such as Derryn Hinch and Nick Xenophon. The real culprits are big business and their industry bodies (Business Council of Australia etc.) who are pulling the strings. It’s the faceless corporations and their board members and shareholders who stand to gain from workers having lower wages, bad conditions, no rights, and weaker unions. The politicians are just the talking puppets.
CONSTRUCTION WORKERS LEAD THE WAY FOR ALL AUSTRALIAN WORKERS!
Construction workers are the strongest and most organised section of workers in Australia currently. It falls on all of us to lead by example and show the way forward for all Australian workers. Attacks on our conditions and unions are going to intensify in the near future. The only answer is united and militant resistance! When injustice becomes law, defiance becomes duty!
- Don’t be intimidated by the bosses or the ABCC
- Don’t sell out conditions for a 2016 Code Compliant Agreement
FIGHT FOR AN INDEPENDENT WORKING CLASS AGENDA!
Now more than ever workers and unions must look to their greatest strength; each other!
Unions need to rely on their members and fellow unions. The solution is not just relying on parliamentary parties. Only an independent and united union movement that fights for what’s best for the working class can push back the relentless attacks of big business.
DARE TO STRUGGLE! DARE TO WIN!
IF YOU DON’T FIGHT, YOU LOSE!
