TOMORROW: Injured Workers Day

2020-05-31

Injured Workers Day

A new national campaigning movement advocating for systemic change for injured workers. Join in on June 1st.

 

It’s almost here!

Tomorrow we launch an integral new movement in Australia, Injured Workers Day!

This is an historic day for anyone who has been injured at work in Australia and across the world.

 

Join us from 11am June 1st   2020 on Facebook Live!
 

Injured Workers Day is a new, union led campaigning movement with support from allies and progressive employers, seeking to change the public conversation and lobby for concrete policy changes to support injured workers and their families. People who are injured or experience trauma at work are routinely let down or re-traumatised by the laws, attitudes, policies, and bureaucracy that they come up against.

RSVP today to reserve your spot.

The program will include an address from State Secretary Paul Healey and Assistant State Secretary,  Kate Marshall , as well as special guests from across the globe who are experts in the field of workplace injuries.

You’ll meet  injured workers  from across Australia, ready to tell their story about the impact of their own workplace injuries on themselves and their families.

The day will culminate in a rousing panel discussion including experts from  Slater and Gordon Union Assist Victorian Trades Hall Council  and other expert panellists, talking about the issues faced by injured workers.

 

Too often, people who are injured at work disappear from public view: from our workplaces, from our lives, from our communities. Existing laws, government policies and practices don't do enough to help.

This isn t fair.  

Join the movement for change.

Support injured workers.
