Australian Unions are fighting to protect the jobs, wages, and rights of every worker in Australia. Australians need fairer and better rights at work. The Australian council of Trade Unions (ACTU) has been invited into talks with employers and the Morrison government, on paper, this is about how to get the economy going again.
Many who strongly suspect that the intention of the government take from workers. Employer organisations have made it clear that they wish to stop wage increase and impose greater labour flexibility, which means more casual and part time jobs. The ACTU is expected to agree.
ACTU Secretary Sally McManus puts the case for participation in the talks, and insists that improving wage s share in the economy, and reducing the casualisation of work are core demands. They will not be given away, she insists.
