Queensland Unions work hard to see off the chaos and confusion of One Nation and the LNP
Queensland workers and their unions have again shown they will fight – and win – to ensure decent working conditions, fair wages and equality for all remain major priorities for Queensland’s future.
Unions across all industries racked up some impressive victories for their members and their communities, while the movement in general was instrumental in campaigning to recognise marriage equality.
As we wind up an action packed 2017, it’s wise to reflect on the victories of the year past, but to also focus on the battles ahead and the rules that we need to change.
Wage growth is still at record lows, wage theft remains the business plan for many dodgy employers, and more effort must go towards ensuring every worker comes home safe at the end of their working day.
The QCU appreciates the support and energy of affiliate unions in working hard to build a better future for all Queenslanders.
In the holiday season, spend some well-deserved time with your family and friends to recharge your batteries ready to rejoin the battle in the year ahead.
See you then!
General Secretary, Queensland Council of Unions
