Join election doorknock to prevent a privatised future

Maitland HS teacher John McFarland (left) has been doorknocking in his local community about cuts to TAFE.

Teachers are joining nurses, electricity workers, firefighters and community volunteers to doorknock in targeted seats as part of Unions NSW’s state election strategy.

More than 3000 homes have been visited so far with 1800 residents signing pledges that they will vote to stop TAFE cuts, oppose the selling of assets and services and the electricity network and support quality healthcare.

The aim of campaigning door-to-door is to engage voters in conversations about the impacts of privatisation so they know what is at stake on March 28.

If you are interested in getting involved in a Knocking for Change event in your electorate or a neighbouring electorate, see the table below. Training is provided and you won’t be knocking on your own. For details on upcoming events and to RSVP click here.

TAFE funding cuts was the top concern among voters polled by Unions NSW about privatisation in NSW — a result due to Federation members’ conversations with community members, be it at the local shop, sports field, a dinner table, school fete or community event.

Thank you to all those members who have made the time and supported these important discussions and events: we have made a difference.
