ETU members wear their Union Pride on Change the Rules National T-Shirt Day

Nicholas McCallum

Members and families hit the streets in Change the Rules gear. 

Saturday February 2 marked the first Change the Rules National T-Shirt Day, and all across Australia, people wore their Union Pride!

The whole idea was sparked by one of our members in Victoria, and it took off from there, being picked up by Australian Unions and the ACTU to become a fully-fledged national campaign.

Every state and territory saw union members and their families don Change the Rules tees and heading to the streets, the shops and parks, wearing their pride.

ETU members did not shy away from showing they are “Proud to be UNION”, heading out and letting people we need to Change the Rules and change the government.

Our members were up early in the Territory.

NSW is heading to the poles twice this year, with the state election coming before the federal campaign (which we expect is coming in May).

The seat of Reid will be a battleground in the federal election, but there are plenty of people in Sydney's west who are ready to see the Liberal state government sent packing. 

That's why the ETU NSW Branch was out on National T-Shirt Day to tell people it's time to Change the Rules. 

Young and old were out to Change the Rules. 


High above Melbourne's streets, our members wore their pride to say we need to Change the Rules - it's now or never! 

CEPU Tasmania member Neil Gillham was enjoying the sun and surf - but he wore his pride in the sea. 

"Even from south eastern Tasmania it’s clear to see change is on the horizon."

In Queensland, ETU State President Chris McGaw celebrated his 60th birthday on with family and friends at Toowoomba’s Trades Hall where their Union Pride was on display.

And the Petrie Change The Rules campaign doorknock and BBQ North Lakes also brought out proud members from the Queensland-NT branch. 


And a special shout-out to Luke and Clare for showing their pride despite Clare undergoing surgery.
