The rules that once made Australian workplaces fair are broken.
With inequality at 70 year highs, wage growth the lowest on record and 40% of people now in insecure work, our union, together with the ACTU and Australia’s other unions have launched a campaign to change the rules for working people.
The rules are broken so let’s change the rules!
As we build the campaign we will keep adding more content, resources and ways you can get involved.

Australia Needs a Pay Rise Rally – 23 October
Join us on 23 October for a country wide rally for a pay rise.
Keep your eyes peeled more details about the rally.
Tell your Story
To win support for our plan to give Australia a pay rise, we need to tell the stories of working people dealing with today’s cost of living pressures.
Share your story about the impact low wage growth has had on your life by calling 1300 486 466 or you can submit your story online here.
Working people need rights at work that give them the power to win fair pay rises. Your story is powerful and can help build public support for our plan to change the rules.
Tell your story this week and invite your friends, family and co-workers to share their stories too!
Hold Workplace Meetings
For us to Change the Rules it’s vital we make sure that our colleagues are with us. And the best way to ensure that our colleagues are with us is to hold workplace meetings to discuss the Change the Rules campaign and why it’s so important.
Workplace meetings are an opportunity to discuss the big issues we face at work, why the rules are broken and what we’re going to do to change the rules.
