Throughout workplaces and communities supporters like you speak up, take action and make change happen.

We’ve just ticked over on the one year anniversary of the last Queensland election, an election where union members like you made change happen and changed how politics is done.

That was an amazing effort driven by union members and supporters who refused to accept the job cuts, below inflation pay and privatisation under Campbell Newman’s LNP. You talked, planned, doorknocked and voted to send a message and won.

Lawrence Springborg is talking privatisation and his desperation is showing. 

In a media interview yesterday he said that Queenslanders could reconsider privatisation after looking at the NSW experience.
