Victorian Trades Hall Council WorkCover Rally

On 29 March I attended a rally by the Victorian Trades Hall Council on the steps of Parliament protesting the raid of $471.5 million of WorkCover dividends by the Baillieu Government. The Baillieu Government’s redirection of dividends to cover up its mismanagement of the Victorian budget will lead to higher WorkCover premiums for businesses at a time of rising unemployment and will provide no improvement to worker benefits.
