Archive for 'Victorian nurses'

Why you should support the nurses

The nurses’ fight is the fight for the rights of the mass of the population to decent wages, safe workloads, and a quality public health system.

Hands off our nurses, Baillieu and Gillard!

The threat of contempt action against the nurses’ union is an assault not only on nurses but on every single worker in Australia, and our already very restricted right to strike. It is happening under Gillard Labor’s anti-worker ‘Fair Work’ Act. The trade union movement has the historic responsibility and opportunity to defend nurses and turn the tide in the one sided 30 year class war of the bosses against us by fighting back and defending the right to strike. When they jail a nurse for striking it’s a rich pig’s country still. Hands off our nurses, Baillieu and Gillard.

Victory to Victorian nurses

The nurses’ fight is our fight. Victory to Victorian nurses.

Victorian nurses, Gillard and Rudd: class politics versus crass politics

The farcical Punch and Judy show in Canberra is a consequence of the lack of fight from the trade union movement over the last 30 years. Victorian nurses are showing a different way, a better way, to win better pay and conditions and by doing that challenging the bosses’ industrial laws. Nurses in Victoria can win their demands, if they keep the industrial action going. They could even defeat the Fair Work Act penal powers and strike restrictions. The sideshow in Canberra won’t produce real change. Strikes can.

Nurses and QANTAS workers: a tale of two campaigns

QANTAS workers could walk off the job tonight, and picket to stop any supplies or personnel getting in or out. That way, like the magnificent Fair Work Australia and government defying Victorian nurses, they might have a chance of winning.

Victory to Victorian nurses

Victorian nurses have the power to destroy the system of fines and threats of jail that are part and parcel of Labor’s Fair Work Act. Indeed, such is the importance of this dispute that other workers and unions should be mobilising in support of the nurses to help them smash Labor’s draconian and anti-worker Fair Work Act and win better pay and conditions.
