Linda is one of Australia's most well-known union leaders. She's been at the forefront of some of our biggest industrial campaigns from supporting workers during the collapse of Ansett and Virgin through to the ASU's equal remuneration campaign. Linda is also the Chair of the Chifley Research Centre, a director at Statewide Super and former vice-president of the ACTU. Linda will draw from the collective experience of union members as we talk about: Virgin Australia's collapse - protecting workers, strong unions and the role of government. Job Keeper, Job Seeker, casual and international workers - what needs to be done to protect non-permanent employees. Keeping our social, community sector and other frontline workers safe, and remunerated, during a crisis. How Unions and progressive organisations can work together to deliver the bold social and economic reform our country desperately needs. Plus - your questions!
