Employment & Training Campaign
At the Founding Assembly, 30 August 2017, we launched our campaign for better EMPLOYMENT & VOCATIONAL TRAINING.
You can read our Research Action Team's Report and see the video below.
Take Action Now:
Attend our Employment Forum on 17th Sept 4 for 4.30-6.30pm. We're bringing people together to share stories, develop a common vision and commit to action.
If you have a story or a passion about quality work we need you! Whether it's about getting work, keeping a job, exploitation at work, and the need for quality training that leads to quality employment.
Sign our petition asking Minister Shannon Fentiman to restore quality and public confidence in vocational training in Qld.
Download our Issues Survey and distribute it in your organisation to gather stories and recruit people to take action.
What we've won so far:
New Labour Hire Inspectors to expose exploitative employment practices for Qld’s most vulnerable workers.
A commitment to particularly targeting these inspectors to contract cleaning, seasonal farm work and hospitality.
The establishment of a new government-led apprenticeship program under Qld Government's Building Asset Services.
Changes to implementation of Schools Solar program that ensure procurement policies will be triggered and extra apprentices are employed.
