iPhone : Speaking of Labour Day, I want to acknowledge the legacy of Bill Onus: an Aboriginal unionist from Cummergunja who, as urban myth or truth would have it, is responsible for telling City of Melbs "Moomba" was a good name for a festival which took away the annual workers' march ✊🏾

iPhone : Treasurer Frydenberg was in Cairns, QLD this morning for breakfast with the business community. UWU members and the union movement were there waiting. Workers are fighting back against the proposed new laws that will reduce job security & cut wages. #auspol #ausunions

Twitter Web App : Great announcement by Anthony Albanese committing to new equal pay laws that will finally allow for jobs in aged care & child care to be properly valued. These jobs are overwhelming done by women & for too long have been undervalued. #IWD2021

Twitter Web App : Casual work is surging post-pandemic. This is widening the gender pay gap. Morrison's Omnibus Bill will make it worse. twitter.com/CntrFutureWork…

Twitter Web App : Happy #IWD2021

IWD started with women striking for respect at work.

110 years later this struggle continues.

TweetDeck : To mark #IWD2021, we have just released a special report into women's progress and gender inequality in Australia. Read it here: australianunions.org.au/2021/03/08/int…

TweetDeck : Reminder today: International Working Women’s Day was created by women going out on strike together to demand safe workplaces & equality.

That that fight continues today, from our campuses to Capitol Hill in Canberra #IWD2021 theage.com.au/national/victo…

TweetDeck : There’s a cruel injustice when two Federal Ministers can take freely extendable mental health leave while 3.7 million Australians don’t have access to any paid leave - at all.

TweetDeck : Today, we recognise the union women who campaign with our movement to close the gender pay gap, make workplaces safe for women, win flexible working conditions and break down structural barriers to gender equality ✊ #IWD2021 #ausunions

TweetDeck : This year in Victoria, as #IWD21 coincidentally falls on Labour Day, we remember that before it was corporatised and sanitised, IWD was actually IWWD. The extra W was for ‘working’. And IWWD was a day for grassroots activism that didn’t ask, it demanded.
