Australian Paper

Stop Australian Paper Cuts!

Workers at Australian Paper in Preston, Melbourne are fighting for a better deal.

They've been on the picket for over 4 weeks. Can you sign up to support them?

These workers earn an average of $24 an hour and all they want is for their pay to keep up with inflation, and to keep their entitlements. 

Their employer wants to freeze their pay and take away entitlements they've fought for. The company is now refusing to negotiate with them. 

At the same time, Australian Paper is posting a huge profit and doesn't pay tax in Australia.

This isn't good enough! Sign up below to support these workers or DONATE to them now. Every dollar helps them to pay the bills and put food on the table.
