Members of the Australian Services Union at the Tenants Union of Victoria (TUV) are currently undertaking industrial action. During 2011, they have been negotiating for a new workplace agreement that forms the basis for their rights at work. If you want to show solidarity with the campaign, please send emails of support to [email protected]
About 400,000 Victorian homes are rented. TUV workers play a crucial role in assisting tenants assert their rights. And yet TUV staff are some of the lowest paid community legal centre workers in Victoria. Striking workers are demanding more equitable conditions, better pay and conditions and an improved service through respect for workers. They deserve our support.
