The Australian Council of Trade Unions wants workers to vote for better wages and working conditions in the upcoming election.
Last night, Thursday, April 11, about 220 people attended the ACTU's "Change the Government, Change the Rules" campaign launch in Gilmore at the Bomaderry Bowling Club.
ACTU president, Michele O'Neil, said workers wages were not keeping up with the cost of living.
"Wages have been stagnating or going backwards over the past six years," she said.
"There is an increase in casual jobs, and problems with penalty rates being cut.
"People don't know what hours they will work and can't plan or budget."
She said workers in the tourism, hospitality and health industries in Gilmore were hardest hit.
She said the ACTU had been speaking to politicians aboutmaking commitments to workers - and was unabashed about their aim to "throw out the Scott Morrison government".
"This government has to go," she said.
"Following that, there has to be changes.
"The Labor Party have made commitments regarding a living wage and increasing fines for wage theft. The Greens have also made commitments."
