The TWU Team represents and advocates for the rights and conditions of TWU members, understanding the pressure transport workers face . They are “fighting for fair” each and every day.
Transport workers ensure Australians have the goods and services they rely on, no matter the crisis. It was transport workers who put themselves at risk to keep Australia fed and clothed through the pandemic.
Sadly, the current Federal Govt has let transport workers down. They have deliberately eroded industrial law, stacked the Fair Work Commission, ignored thousands of workers in their time of need, encouraged low growth and insecure work which has stripped pay and conditions of thousands of workers and (appallingly) abolished the Road Safety Remuneration Tribunal.
These issues have negatively affected many TWU members whether they work in transport, airlines, or in the gig economy.
It was wonderful to be able to attend the National Conference dinner, hear the impassioned speeches and catch up with people both local and interstate. Thank you for the invite TWU.
The Liberals and their mates have deep pockets and out-spend us every election. That’s why we need fine folk like our grassroots Labor supporters to help us out – even with small donations.
If you want to help my colleague Julie Collins MP continue her great work as Labor Member for Franklin, please buy some tickets in her raffle fundraiser. Tickets are $10 each and there are some fantastic prizes to be won (a couple of which I’ve got my eye on!)
They say if you want a friend in politics get a dog, but Toby and I have been friends for many years. He is intelligent, motivated, and energetic and I urge you all to support him to become the next member for Huon.
Today I joined members of the Ukrainian community – including husband Robert Bilyk – and their Tasmanian friends at a rally in Hobart calling for peace in Ukraine.
The Labor Opposition stands shoulder to shoulder with the Australian Government, the Australian community and Australia’s allies across the world in supporting Ukraine and opposing this unprovoked aggression.
