Half of Unemployed Dumped Their Demerits!

In July, the AUWU launched its Dump Your Demerits Campaign and encouraged unemployed workers to fight the imposition of unfair demerit points.

We have just been informed that between July and September this year, 50% of unemployed workers facing the ‘penalty zone’ successfully managed to get Centrelink to Dump Their Demerits.

This shows that the Demerit Point system is simply continuation the unfairness of the previous compliance system which also had a 50% error rate. This is a national disgrace.

In our petition here we are demanding Kelly O’Dwyer abolish this unfair compliance system.
