Federal Election 2015 is fast approaching and we want to make sure that workers’ concerns are well represented in the discussions and outcomes. To see change happen, we need to act and talk to our colleagues, neighbours and families about these values, who best represents them and will work to safeguard them in our laws. Our plan is to bring together seasoned campaigners and new activists from a wide range of communities and workplaces to share the experience they have while learning the latest and best practices for effective campaigning – from outreach and training to social media. Our goal is to show them how to take on the negative, powerful politics of greed and deliver a win for fairness.

  • Obtain new skills to help in local campaigns
  • Get the tools to talk to anyone about this election and all the important issues
  • Build face-to-face skills to talk to people in the workplace and on the door step
  • Learn how to build political support and capacity in your community
  • Learn how to use social media for effective campaigning
  • Learn how to reach out to different communities of interest
