*IR Education 2023 – Making History!*
The ACTU and ATUI are coordinating a comprehensive IR Law Education program, including face-to-face and online education, as well as national events that bring the movement together as a whole. The goal is simple: to understand how we can use the ‘Secure Jobs, Better Pay’ legislation to aid the vital work we do day in day out supporting our members. By collaborating and building a shared understanding of the new laws, we can and will grow our unions and win generation-defining change for workers.

As unionists we have a responsibility to understand the changes so we can help create safe workplaces and support those who need to access leave.
