With a referendum expected in October, the campaign to support a Yes vote for the Voice is gaining momentum.
As unionists and educators, we know the importance of being heard.
The Voice to Parliament is a natural extension of our union principles of consultation and a collective voice. It goes to our fundamental values of solidarity, equality and justice, and our belief in working towards a better life for everyone.
Our First Nations peoples want and deserve to have a say when government is making decisions about them and their communities, and they have asked us for our support to make this happen.
The Voice to Parliament is about rights and recognition, and the union movement has a crucial role to play – the referendum is only going to be successful if we stand together and fight for it.
