Save our Weekend Community Conversations


A group of leaders from United Voice, the Uniting Church, the Anglican Social Responsibility Committee, the Shop and Distributors Allied Employees, MDA Ltd and the Queensland Council of Unions met to plan collective action around protecting the weekend, and raising community voices in debates over weekend penalty rates and Sunday trading. 
 
Out of this meeting came a commitment to organise pre-election community conversations at a Catholic church, an Anglican Cathedral and a Uniting Church.

These events will be a chance to ask Federal candidates for their promise to protect the weekend, and weekend rates of pay.

If you believe that we need to protect our weekend as time for rest, family and community, come along to your closest community conversation and make sure you are heard!
