UNITE is launching the new ‘Respect Workers Rights’ campaign, focusing on Brunswick Street, Fitzroy. Many workers in the fast food, retail and hospitality industries do not receive their full legal entitlements at work.
Recently, UNITE has received an increase in complaints on such basic issues as pay rates, workplace health and safety and bullying and discrimination. This campaign aims to force bosses to provide their workers with at least their minimum entitlements.
While we pay top dollar for our coffees on Brunswick Street, workers are being paid way below the minimum wage and being bullied to work in unsafe and unhealthy environments.
UNITE wants to involve as many people as possible in this important new campaign. If you want to volunteer to help in the campaign then please come along to this volunteer introduction meeting.
We will be
– Explaining the campaign
– Explaining what you can do to help
– Singing up volunteers
– Providing volunteer training
– Answering any questions
Date: Saturday 12th of February
Location: Trades Hall, Cnr Lygon St & Victoria Parade, Carlton South
