Militant union leaders call for nationwide protests on June 28

Militant union leaders explain why a big mobilisation across Australia will be essential for the success of the campaign against the Howard government’s anti-worker laws.


We’re the majority — let’s show Howard what democracy means!

"Poll after poll [has] demonstrated that the Australian people don’t agree at all with anything we are doing on this — we have minority support for what we’re doing."
—Finance minister Nick Minchin to H. R. Nicholls Society

The vast majority of Australians oppose Work Choices. ACTU research shows that less than one in four Australians support the laws, and almost 70% believe that they will benefit big corporations and hurt ordinary families. The job is to impose the will of the majority—let’s make sure our unions act to give the majority a voice.
