To the Honourable Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives assembled in Parliament.

We the undersigned call on the Federal Government to preserve the basic rights of Australian workers, including a preservation of a basic minimum wage and award conditions and the retention of the Industrial Relations Commission.

Australian workers should be protected against unfair dismissal and also have the right to reject AWA individual contracts and negotiate collectively with their employer.

Your petitioners therefore respectfully request that the House encourage employers to provide fair working conditions for their employees.

by Ms Hall (from 48 citizens)
