First Ever Casual Workers Conference

Reading Time: < 1 minutes

The first ever Casual Workers Conference has been called by Unite for Saturday 3rd April 2004. The Conference will be an opportunity for the voice of casual workers to be heard. 2.2 million (1 million casual for over one year) face a working life without sickies, holidays, job security, the ability to get a loan and more.

The Conference will skill up casual workers about their industrial and health and safety rights, legal situation, organising skills and more. Speakers will come from unions, Unite, academics, Job Watch and there will be a session where casual workers can quiz politicians from the major parties as to their policies for casuals.

Please spread news of this Conference far and wide via word of mouth, your email and web lists and any way at all.

The COVID-19 pandemic has laid bare many of the problems with capitalism. The Socialist strives to explain the systemic causes of this crisis, and reports about the issues that are important to working people. We also help to organise struggles against the powers that be.

We don’t receive a cent from big business or governments. Our work is fully funded by our supporters. Even if half the people who read our website every month donated a few dollars each we would raise thousands to help our work!

We need organisations of struggle now more than ever, so if you support what we do please consider making a donation.
