The China Free Trade Agreement will let employers bring in overseas workers without first advertising the jobs to local workers. This is outrageous and deeply unfair. Tony Abbott should never have signed a deal that prevents local workers from getting jobs here in Australia.
We can stop this agreement.
We need to make sure the ALP oppose it and convince the crossbench Senators to stand with them against any legislation that could make this job killing deal a reality.
This weekend is the ALP National Conference so it is crunch time.
This is how you can be that tipping point that stops the China FTA.
- Join one of the rallies across the country. If you are in Melbourne there is one outside the ALP National Conference this Friday at 8am.
- Take 30 seconds to let the Parliamentary Committee considering the China trade deal know just how unfair it is. The crossbench Senators will be influenced by this report.
- Visit our campaign page for campaign materials and further actions you can take.
Working people are saying NO to this agreement.
Across the country union members have been standing up and building serious pressure with protests, community meetings, talking with people in their communities, speaking to the media as well as filling up the email inboxes of politicians.
Tony Abbott’s MPs are rattled and the ALP is seriously considering coming out against the job killing elements of the China FTA.
Together we can make sure our politicians put our jobs first.
