'Stop the Intervention' and 'Jobs with Justice' Rally

'Stop the Intervention' and 'Jobs with Justice'
Rally at the State Library, Melbourne,
5:00pm Friday March 4th, 2011

Melbourne Anti Intervention Collective (MAIC) will be holding a rally to boost signatures for a petition sponsored by the Construction Forestry, Mining and Energy Union (CFMEU) and Unions NT. The petition has been created out of concern at the exploitation of Aboriginal workers taking place under the Community Development Employment Program (CDEP).

Of particular concern is the use of CDEP labour on the federal government's $672 million Strategic Housing and Infrastructure Program (SIHIP). Local Aboriginal workers on the CDEP have been working for substandard CDEP wages, or for the

BasicsCard, alongside fully paid construction workers from outside the community. This is a grave affront to the principle of equal pay for equal work.

The petition will be tabled in parliament on 21st March 2011.
