Labour Day Doorknock to #StopAdani in Batman

WHERE: Meet @ the Tram86 Studio, 206 Tyler Street, Preston

WHEN: 3-7pm Monday March 12, Labour Day

This Labour Day, Monday March 12, join us to have hundreds of conversations with the people of Melbourne about the Adani Group’s terrible workers’ rights record ahead of the Batman by-election on March 17.

On Labour Day, we celebrate those who fought for decent and fair working conditions, and we recharge for the fight ahead.

The Adani Group has an appalling record when it comes to workers’ rights and safety. From reports of cholera outbreaks amongst workers forced to live in crowded, unsanitary conditions to child labourers as young as 12 chronically overworked and underpaid, and worker deaths and serious injuries at Adani sites [1] [2] [3]. None of the Adani Group’s four companies have any engagement with their associated unions. [4]

And for their proposed mine Australia, Adani Australia CEO says “We will be utilising at least 45, 400-tonne driverless trucks… Everything will be autonomous from mine to port. In our eyes, this is the mine of the future.”

This Labour Day, let’s stand up for the rights of all workers by making sure that the people of Batman know where the Adani Group stands on workers rights and how they can use their vote to #StopAdani.
