General Trade, Mining and Manufacturing
The Abbott Government negotiated the terms of the China Free Trade Agreement in secret because it comes at the cost of local jobs, worker safety, workplace rights and community safety.
Next Monday we're rallying in Canberra to stop the China Free Trade Agreement and demand the Government renegotiate the deal in the interests of the community.
Use your lunch break to join the rally – more information in the attached flyer. RSVP here.
August 10, 2015 at 12pm - 1pm
Garema Place, Canberra
25 Garema Pl
Canberra, ACT 2600
The public is overwhelmingly against this deal and making our message heard is crucial to protecting local jobs. Invite your friends and colleagues. See you there.
