As unemployed workers, governments have always locked us out of policy decisions that affect our lives. With your help, we can finally have our voices heard.
Since 2015, unemployed workers have been building a strong voice within the AUWU. Now, we have joined forces with GetUp! to make our voices even stronger.
As part of this campaign, GetUp! will amplify the voices of unemployed AUWU members demanding the Coalition increase Newstart and address Australia's growing jobs crisis.
GetUp! will provide media training, ongoing support, and cover all associated costs of anyone acting as a spokesperson for this campaign.
Thanks to GetUp's reach, we have an opportunity to start a new era of Australian politics in which the rights and dignity of unemployed workers are respected.
For this campaign to work, it is crucial individual unemployed workers speak out.
Once you fill it out, we will be in touch with more details.
Let's make history!
