Federal Election 2015 is fast approaching and we want to make sure that workers’ concerns are well represented in the discussions and outcomes. To see change happen, we need to act and talk to our colleagues, neighbours and families about these values, who best represents them and will work to safeguard them in our laws. Our plan is to bring together seasoned campaigners and new activists from a wide range of communities and workplaces to share the experience they have while learning the latest and best practices for effective campaigning – from outreach and training to social media. Our goal is to show them how to take on the negative, powerful politics of greed and deliver a win for fairness.
A series of skill-building workshops will help you:
Obtain new skills to help in local campaigns
Get the tools to talk to anyone about this election and all the important issues
Build face-to-face skills to talk to people in the workplace and on the door step
Learn how to build political support and capacity in your community
Learn how to use social media for effective campaigning
Learn how to reach out to different communities of interest
Who should go?
The people in your union who can build, lead and deliver a winning campaign need to be at this conference – leaders, community campaigners, organizers and communicators; women and men, young and old; workers of colour, with disabilities, Aboriginal, LGBT; public sector and private sector; full-time, part-time or retired.
