Queensland Unions are supporting a YES vote in the upcoming referendum on constitutional recognition and a Voice to Parliament for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
Unions have always fought for social justice. We know that our work as activists does not stop at the door to our workplaces. Inclusion, reconciliation and social justice have always been union business.
To help ensure this referendum is successful, unions need to get involved with the Yes Alliance and do what we do best: organise, campaign and win change.
You can find out more about this campaign or sign up as a supporter on the Queensland Unions for YES website.
A range of campaign meetings are being held online and in Brisbane this month. Register now to get involved!
