Have you heard FSU’s radio ad?

In FSU’s new radio ad, finance workers battling to protect their jobs against offshoring take aim at politicians who provide taxpayer support to banks.

The union is tired of politicians failing to act as companies rolling in billions in profit sack Australians to send jobs abroad.

The 30-second radio ad features a recently unemployed Sydney bank worker, Carmel Bourke, asking “where the bloody hell” politicians are in standing up to banks like ANZ.

The ad has been running on commercial radio stations in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Adelaide.

Comedy Festival tickets go begging. Competition extended. 

There have been very few entries for this competition, so we’re extending the deadline, which means you still have a chance to win Melbourne International Comedy Festival tickets, thanks to the kind folks at Comedy @ Trades.

For one lucky member we’ve got 5 double passes to any five shows staged at Trades Hall during the festival (that’s right people, 10 tickets! Estimated value $200+) and five runners up will win 1 double pass each.

How to enter:

  1. Thinking about media reports of ANZ offshoring Australian jobs, write a caption for this photograph of ANZ CEO Mike Smith. Keep it clean, but make it funny. Easy, right?
  2. Visit the Comedy@Trades website and choose 5 shows that you wish to see (Wed and Thurs performances only)
  3. Email your caption, and your list of five shows, together with your FSU membership number to by 12.00 noon Monday 30th March.
  4. Winners will be notified by return email by Tuesday 31st March. As it is difficult to reallocate these tickets, you must be able to attend shows on the dates you nominate.

Good luck!
