Your Rights At Work - Worth Voting For? Modern unionism and its role in Australian politics

The recent Victorian State election saw a revival in union political campaigning on an unprecedented scale.  Nurses, paramedics, teachers, firefighters and many other unions were mobilised to assist with Victorian Labor’s extensive grass roots campaign. The work of trade unions and its members was a critical factor in winning the marginal seats that provided for Labor’s success, at this election. 

With victory secured in Victoria, we ask: what comes next? How do we continue to build on the momentum that has been achieved? And what should be the goals of the movement be over the coming five years? What does this mean for the Federal election in 2016? And more importantly, how can unions continue to be a relevant and sustained source for good in modern Australia? 

Join us to hear informed perspectives from the people at the forefront of both Victorian and Australian unionism.
