The AUWU has 5 tickets to give away to AUWU members for the Right2Work Conference in Melbourne on 21 July (valued at $25 each).
To win a ticket, write a letter to Minister Cash at firstname.lastname@example.org explaining how the Coalition’s failure to address the employment crisis has affected you.
Post your letter on your facebook or twitter with the #Right2Work hash tag.
The Right2Work conference features renowned experts John Falzon (St Vincent De Paul), Jim Stanford (Australian Institute), Warwick Smith (Per Capita) and Steve Keen (economist) who will discuss Australia’s employment crisis and how the government should address it.
The best five letters will win a ticket. Winners will be announced on Monday 17th of July.
If your job agency is treating you badly and not respecting your rights, its important that you fight back.
When you write to your job agency to assert your rights, it is important that your job agency is not able to sweep your issue under the carpet. That is why it is important to send this letter to the top brass at your job agency.

The Coalition government have released guidelines about the PaTH program and the Community Development Program (CDP).
These guidelines state the rights of unemployed workers. The Coalition, however, does not make these rights easily accessible. The AUWU will be summarising these guides shortly and making them available in our unemployed workers rights guideline.
In the meantime, they are available here

We look forward to working with you.
