MEDIA ALERT: UNIONS RALLY TO CRIMINALISE MANSLAUGHTER AS POLL SHOWS OVERWHELMING SUPPORT FOR NEW LAWS

Unions NSW < 1 mins read

MEDIA ALERT

Unions will rally at the top of Martin Place in support of new laws that would see industrial manslaughter attract a 25 year gaol term.

Speakers at the rally will include advocates such as Patrizia Cassaniti, Unions NSW Secretary Mark Morey, workers and parliamentarians. The rally comes as new polling - which will be released at the rally - shows overwhelming support for the reform. 

NSW is the last mainland state without an industrial manslaughter offence. Since the Parliament last considered a private member’s bill to deal with industrial manslaughter more than 125 people have died.

WHAT: Unions, advocates rally to criminalise industrial manslaughter, followed by doorstop interview
WHEN: Rally at 0830, doorstop at 0900, Monday 3 June 2024
