"The last thing I want to do is go to jail," says Noel. "But there are bigger things at stake here. Workers' rights for one. And in the building industry, we don't have them."

WorkCover Campaign

Protest to: Improve WorkCover for Workers

 

WorkCover was introduced to provide fair and just compensation for workers who were injured or developed illnesses as a result of work. The Kennett Government took away the fairness and justice. This was rejected by the Victorian people. The Labor Government promised to bring back fairness.

 

It is time to deliver fair and just workers compensation.

 

The Brumby Government established a review of WorkCover. The Union movement has participated in the review, we've been patient. The Review has not recommended enough. Now is time to campaign.

 

Send a new letter to your politicians.

 

Do you access to a computer, at home, a library or a cybernet café? If you don't feel comfortable on the internet, your kids will be able to help you look at http://fixworkcover.org and send a new letter off to the ALP parliamentarians. This will make them think twice only if there are many hundreds (or even thousands) of letters sent. The process only takes 10 minutes. Even if you sent a letter to the politicians earlier this is a new message.

 

Protest

 

The first will be held outside the Accident Compensation Conciliation Service and will highlight the recommendation in the Hanks Report to gut the service. The protest will also highlight the AMIEU's call for the service to be given greater powers. We want Conciliation Officers to have Arbitration Powers. The protest will be at:

 

1 pm, Wednesday 12 November

ACCS

460 Lonsdale Street

Melbourne

 

The second will be outside the WorkCover agent, Cambridge Integrated Services, and will highlight the poor service injured workers receive from all of the VWA's agents. The protest will be at:

 

1 pm, Monday 24 November

Cambridge Integrated Services

390 LaTrobe Street

Melbourne
