CFMEU - Here for the Blue!

Today on the show we are joined by CFMEU union organiser Blake, and health and safety rep Hayden, both members of the CFMEU Youth Crew, talking to us about working conditions on construction sites.

Our Scallywag of the week, Scott Morrison opposing efforts to #raisetherate of Newstart, and the nomination from Hayden and Blake - foreign mining corp Glencore, who have been forced by ATO to open their books!

Plus updates on workers action being taken up by the RTBU, CPSU, Public Service Association, and Anti-Poverty Network SA (among others), to take a stand against efforts by the South Australian Liberal Party government to privatise public services.
And of course, a shout out to our Yuggera Ugarapul comrades fighting to Save Deebing Creek Mission, and our comrades in the ETU in their struggle to maintain their hard-fought for conditions at O.I. Glass South Brisbane.
