Conservative forces are being rallied to wreck the debate on a pollution price and we want to ensure that Labor MPs, the Greens and the Independents understand that there is a great amount of support in the Australian community for passing appropriate legislation.
To this end, we want to get as many signatures as possible prior to presenting the petition in the week of the 21st to 24th of March.
Climate change is one of the most pressing economic, social and environmental challenges we face, and Australians will be hit hard if we do not respond with urgent and decisive action to reduce pollution, improve energy efficiency and support the transition to a low carbon economy.
Unions have been working hard at both national and international levels to develop real, workable and equitable solutions to this major problem.
The petition is available in PDF format (download here) or it can be signed electronically through the Your Rights at Work here.
We’re aiming for 10000 signatures and time is tight, but with your help we think it’s a target we can achieve!
