    Leave TAFE alone.

    No TAFE takeover

    1,622 signatures

    We are calling on Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk and Minister for Skills and Training Yvette D'Ath to oppose the Turnbull government’s plans to takeover TAFE and open the doors to private providers rushing in to profit off students seeking vocational education.

    See the leaked plan here. 

    Last year when Queenslanders voted for change, they voted against cuts, privatisation of their public services and assets – including TAFE. The Palaszczuk government has taken important steps to reverse the attacks on the sector under the Newman government and should be commended for their efforts to put students and workers ahead of the wholesale privatisation of the sector envisaged by the LNP and their big business backers.

    Add your name today and join with the Queenslanders calling for a better public TAFE not the dismantling of the sector through cuts, privatisation and fee hikes.

    All of us have rights. It's time for Queensland to recognise them through a bill of rights. Support a review. http://www.workingforqueenslanders.org.au/bill_of_rights?recruiter_id=148990

    Queensland's Bill Of Rights

    498 votes

    Queensland is a big place. 

    Queenslanders are ready for a big conversation, a conversation that is worth having - a conversation for our rights. 

    It's time for a real review into a bill of rights in Queensland. We all have rights as people, it's time that our democracy recognised those rights and gave them legal protection against politicians that go too far. 

    Do you support a bill of rights in Queensland?
