Introducing the FSU First Nations Workers Committee

We are excited to announce the formation of the FSU First Nations Workers Committee, a dedicated and passionate group of members committed to supporting First Nations workers and amplifying their voices.

Our committee members include April Cook, Caine Hanshaw, Rina Abbott-Jard, James Channon, Tegan Walsh-Jones, Lisa Hunter, Adam Fletcher, and Pamela Anderson.

Together, they’ll be guiding our activities and ensuring our First Nations members are well represented.

Supporting the ‘Yes’ campaign

As strong advocates for change, our newly formed FSU First Nations Workers Committee will be at the forefront of FSU’s support for the Voice to Parliament ‘Yes’ campaign. Their leadership and guidance will be instrumental in shaping our union’s involvement in this critical movement.

Through the committee’s direction, and by focusing on First Nations voices and perspectives in our activities, we’ll be championing the cause for a First Nations Voice to Parliament.

The Union connection: Aligning with our values

The support for a First Nations Voice to Parliament is a natural expression of the values held by our Union. Our commitment to consultation and collective strength is mirrored in the establishment of the Voice, as it offers a platform for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to express their concerns and opinions. By promoting a ‘Voice,’ we hope to contribute to a future where Indigenous communities can shape their own policy solutions, leading to a fairer and more inclusive society.

How finance workers can contribute to the movement

As a finance worker seeking to make a difference, there are things you can do to support this important campaign:

  1. Educate yourself: Begin by learning more about the Voice to Parliament. Becoming well-informed will empower you to engage in meaningful discussions in the workplace and counter any misinformation that may arise.
  2. Spread the word: Share information about the Voice to Parliament with colleagues, friends, and family, raising awareness and fostering a sense of unity in this vital movement.
  3. Volunteer your time: As the referendum approaches, there will be opportunities to volunteer and help build support for the Indigenous Voice to Parliament. Sign up through the form below and contribute to ensuring that Indigenous Australians have a say in the decisions that affect them.

We invite all finance workers to join us in supporting the Yes campaign to create a more just and equitable society for all Australians and to foster meaningful change.
