Union members gather in huge numbers to Change the Rules

Hundreds of thousands of workers joined forces at rallies in Sydney, Melbourne and Wollongong on 23 October in support of the Change the Rules campaign and IEU organisers and members were in the thick of the action.


ACTU President Michele O’Neil said it was time for workers to stand up and fight for a fairer Australia and a change of rules.
