Take Action

Draft a resolution

Draft and sponsor a resolution to your Federation of Labour or Labour Council condemning the use of labour laws that restrict or deny the fundamental rights of workers and proposing that progressive labour law reform be a central focus of labour’s political agenda.

Sign the Workers’ Bill of Rights

Since 2006, thousands, including all Federal Leaders of the Opposition, have signed a pledge to uphold workers rights.
