Three reasons to volunteer for Unions For Yes
As a unionist you know how to win campaigns and fight for fair wages and conditions for working people. We're calling on your skills and expertise to help ensure that the referendum passes.
Grassroots democracy at work
The Constitution cannot be changed by politicians, it can only be changed but the Australian people. That means Unions For Yes is an inherently grassroots campaign that brings people together to build a stronger, more fairer nation.
Union members are the best people for the job
Organising is at the root of all union activities. Union members driving the YES campaign just makes sense. You're already equipped with the basics.
It's now or never
The last referendum held in Australia was in 1999. Voting in a referendum is a once-in-a-generation opportunity. Literally. We must do everything we can to ensure the result is YES.
This referendum will be a powerful moment, not just for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, but for the whole country. When we start listening to each other, the country will be stronger.Lara Watson – ACTU Indigenous Officer
