Congratulations to everyone who turned out and made today's rallies a huge success - it was a great start to the campaign. It's vital that the current negotiations result in an outcome that protects wages and conditions, ensures safe workplaces and doesn't put the Queensland Community at risk.

Congratulations to all those who have already made a stand for Disability Services during our week of action, this week!
