But won't pay for paid breaks

Yesterday almost 100 people joined the leader of the union movement, ACTU Secretary Sally McManus, at our rally in support of Uniting AgeWell workers. Read all about it here

We were joined by UAW employees and other aged care workers and union members who stood together against UAW’s shameful behaviour, and we were also joined by all the major media outlets so you may have seen us on the news last night.

But there were some unexpected attendees…

We were joined by a whole private security team!

Instead of paying for everyone to have paid breaks, UAW gave their money to security guards to block all exits to the Kings Meadows facility to stop us coming in and to intimidate members who wanted to walk out.

Just when you think they can’t get any worse, UAW sink to a new low. No aged care employer has ever called security on their own members before.

But they couldn’t stop the workers, and you continue to stand tall.

If you haven’t had a chance yet, please vote No! The poll closes Saturday and, unlike last time, the result won’t just be deleted by UAW.
