This weekend 27-28 February 2016, hundreds of union members and community volunteers will be door-knocking across the country. We will be talking to people about the issues that will affect them like their rights at work, their income levels, Medicare cuts that threaten their health, and others.
Registering is easy: after you select the venue you wish to participate in, an online form will appear to take your details.
We will be having face-to-face conversations about the issues that matter to all of us, things like workers' rights being watered down, penalty rates under attack leading to unilateral pay cuts, Medicare privatisation and changes to rebates, and changes to paid parental leave provisions that are making it almost impossible for people on lower incomes to plan their families.
You don't have to be an industrial expert to participate and you won't be alone as all volunteers will be paired up with an experienced door-knocker. You just need to believe in what you're saying and be prepared to share your concerns.

Face to face discussions change votes. Imagine how amazing it will feel to be part of such a massive movement for positive change!
