Support the Esso workers

They’re fighting for you.

For over a year, families in Longford, Victoria have been making big sacrifices to take a stand against some of the biggest companies in Australia.

They were sacked and offered their jobs back with 30% pay cuts and a cruel anti-family roster.

Since 20 June 2017, they've been out on a picket line fighting for their jobs and their dignity.

It hasn’t been easy. They’ve come together to keep a 24/7 protest running through temperatures of -6 degrees Celsius in winter right through to the hot summer. They are protesting because they are ready to work on fair pay and fair rosters.

They need our support to keep up this important fight. The workers are raising money so they can continue to pay the bills and feed their families while they fight for justice. If they don't have the resources to stay afloat and keep fighting, more employers across the country will think they can get away with this too.

It’s been hard going. We would appreciate if you could donate a few dollars so the 200 families can keep up this important fight for all working people.
