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.
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.
