We did it!
Back in May, the AUWU asked Greens Senator Rachel Siewert to investigate the government's punitive and dysfunctional jobactive system.
On Wednesday, the Senate agreed to an inquiry into jobactive. Thank you Senator Rachel Siewert!
Years of hard work by AUWU volunteers have paid off. This is a high-level investigation into the abuses and wastefulness of jobactive - a $7 billion privatised employment services system.
To mark this great victory, the AUWU is launching its December Deluge campaign. We are going to flood the Senate with submissions about the reality of jobactive.
Click here to tell the Senate your story. The Senate will report on 5 December but we don't know yet when they will stop taking submissions. Get yours in ASAP.
This is a huge opportunity to shout loud and clear about how jobactive has impacted you or people you know. Finally, we will be heard.
Every story is vital! If you have told your story before, tell it again. If you have not yet come forward with your story, now is the time.
You can submit anonymously if you wish.
Write up your experiences of jobactive in your own words. Write as much or as little as you like. Add whatever information you feel is appropriate.
Here is December Deluge campaign page to share on facebook and throughout your networks.
