JOBS YOU CAN COUNT ON

Cleaners are under attack

I'm Judith, I'm a school cleaner and a United Voice delegate. We've just found out that the government are opening the contract tender for government cleaning, with no jobs guarantee, no hours guarantee and weakened protections around subcontracting.

Worst case scenario - and I'm being realistic here - we could all lose our jobs in a year. 

We have to stop this - and the only way to make the government listen is to get the word out, get the public on our side, and force them to reconsider! I've started a petition with our union telling the government that cleaners deserve jobs we can count on - please add your name and share today!

We've fought - and won - big fights before. From the minimum wage, to Medicare, to - more recently - portable long service leave for us cleaners, we've seen that when we stand together and speak with one voice, people listen.

But the government are trying to rush things through behind closed doors - we've only got until October to alter the terms of the contract. If we don't stand up and speak out, we're staring at massive job losses, insecure work, wage theft and worse. So add your name to this petition - and share it with everyone you know! 

In union,

Judith
Cleaner & proud United Voice member
