In just a few days we mobilised nearly 5000 supporters. We inundated Campbell Newman’s office with almost 2000 emails. We marched on his office. And we dominated the TV news for 4 of the last 6 days (at one stage we even beat the Olympics as first story).
And the result has been swift. The government has backed-down on plans to dismantle BreastScreen Queensland and to contract out state school cleaning
Today our campaign has been credited with a giant turn-around in support for Campbell Newman in his own seat of Ashgrove. It’s the first time a newly elected Premier has ever had a negative approval rating.
Congratulations, and on behalf of thousands of workers in education and health - thanks for your support.
