Fight For Our Wages

Anyone working in the trade will have noticed that the increased use of labour hire has had a negative impact on wages.

It’s a trend across all workplaces – with wage growth at an all-time low and casualization increasing. The Turnbull Government is more focused on increasing business profits over wages.

In the past the ETU has been able to limit the amount of labour hire through EBA’s, which protected jobs for regular fulltime workers.

The Turnbull Government’s ABCC laws have made these sorts of provisions illegal, effectively green-lighting the spread of labour hire across the industry to undermine our pay and our job security.

ETU members will be fighting to reverse these attacks and limit the use of labour hire in the future. Watch the video below, then sign up to join the campaign.
