Rally outside the Minister's office
We're now up to 170 incidents of staff assault so far this year. Our Respect the Risk campaign is making politicians sit up and take notice (see the petition Bruce Sanders MP is supporting here) but we need to do more.
That is why we are holding a rally on 29 October 12:00 outside the Minister's office at 1 William St in the Brisbane CBD.
Are you on a day off? Are you prepared to attend?
Corrections Safety Rally
12pm Tuesday 29 October
Outside Minister Ryan's office - 1 William St, Brisbane
Please let me know if you will be attending, this is an important rally - it is about your safety at work.
We are organising buses for Maryborough and Woodford. We'll let you know more details closer to the date.
We are calling on Minister Mark Ryan to issue all staff with OC spray and release the funds of the 202 additional FTE announced in the budget.
We need a sea of blue outside the Minister's office to show the government we are serious about our safety.
