Melbourne Community Rally and Union Solidarity Breakfast

8:30 – 9:30am Mon
Dec 8

Jesuit Social Services

371 Church Street Richmond

Luke McMahon, winner of the Australian Services Union (ASU) Occupational Health and Safety Rep of the year award for 2008, has been stood down from his position as a youth worker with the Brosnan Centre, an affiliate of Jesuit Social Services (JSS), after he informed management that they had failed to comply with OH&S legislation.

During his time at Brosnan, Luke transformed his workplace from having almost no union membership to almost 100% coverage. He also made sure that occupational health and safety reps were elected in JSS workplaces which previously did not have delegates.

It’s time for the community sector to understand that community fairness starts at home. Social justice is worker justice.

Justice for Luke!
Stop the victimisation of union activists!
