This year, there will be a referendum on recognising Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples through a Voice to Parliament. The TWU is backing the ‘YES’ campaign.

At the TWU, we fight every day to give transport workers a powerful voice. We understand the importance of having a seat at the table and consulting on issues that directly impact our lives and work. Read on for more on why we’re getting behind the ‘YES’ campaign, and click here to sign your name for updates.

We are backing our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander members, families, friends and communities in this historic campaign. Here’s why:

  1. We are answering the call of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples who want our movement’s support for a Voice to Parliament in the constitution.
  2. For over 100 years, parliaments have enacted laws and failed policies that have often entrenched discrimination and disadvantage, such as forcing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to work for free or below legal minimum wages.
  3. The minimum First Nations peoples deserve is that their voices be respected and listened to before laws & policies are made that directly affect them.

It’s time we open our nation’s next chapter by voting ‘YES’ at the referendum.
