National Union Of Workers Wants Your Views On Job Equality


The National Union of Workers is running a major campaign aimed at surveying the opinions of Australians about workplace equality and security.

The survey takes a couple of minutes to complete, and the data collected will be used by the NUW to inform an ongoing campaign for better rights for workers in Australia.

You can take the survey by clicking the banner ad in the top right of this website (the ‘Is Australia Fair’ banner ad up next to the New Matilda logo).

The NUW ad is a paid advertisement in New Matilda. By supporting our advertisers, our readers are helping to support New Matilda as well.

You can find out more about the NUW here. The NUW's Facebook page is here.

NUW notes in its survey introduction: “It used to be that when you got a job, it was a job you could count on. Over the last 30 years, that's been changing.

“More and more people now work in insecure jobs, ones without the security that employment used to provide.

“At the National Union of Workers we want to help build an Australia where every person gets a decent living – a community where every worker counts.

“But that's not going to change without deep transformation in this country. We want your feedback about what you think about working in Australia and what changes you want to see.”

A personal note from New Matilda owner Chris Graham

Advertorials are a new thing for New Matilda. Traditionally, New Matilda hasn’t run them in the past. The reason why we’re running them now is because in order for New Matilda to survive and thrive, we need to increase our revenue base.

While we greatly appreciate the contributions of subscribers, New Matilda cannot exist on subscription revenue alone (at least, we can’t at the current rate… although you can help fund us here!). So advertising revenue is an important part of providing enough resources to pay our writers and grow our business.

And in order to build our advertising base, we need to ensure that our advertisers get their important messages out effectively.

Whenever New Matilda runs material submitted by advertisers, it will be clearly marked as ‘advertorial’. It’s then, obviously, your choice whether to read it or not. We hope that you do, because if you want to support the work of New Matilda, then supporting the advertisers who support us is a great way to help out.

And of course, we’ll always try and make the advertorial content as relevant as possible to the New Matilda army.

Launched in 2004, New Matilda is one of Australia's oldest online independent publications. It's focus is on investigative journalism and analysis, with occasional smart arsery thrown in for reasons of sanity. New Matilda is owned and edited by Walkley Award and Human Rights Award winning journalist Chris Graham.
