MEAA Goes Country!
Welcome to the debut edition of Workers OnLine. Every week we'll bring you news and views in the traditions of the workers press of yesteryear, but with our eyes firmly on the future.
Workers Online Kicks Off!
We want to make Workers Online not only your first source of independent progressive news, but also a site that's informative, irreverent and fun to hit.
While the initiative is being supported by Labor Council, it is not an official Council mouthpiece. We'll be welcoming and publishing diverse views in an effort to promote the sort of debate that we need if we are to become a presence in the workplaces of the future.
In these early days the one thing you can do to support Workers OnLine is to get as many colleagues to subscribe as you can. It's easy to print out the front page, so pass it around and spread the word.
Our aim is to attract sufficient traffic to generate advertising, so we can be continually improving the paper. And if you want to contribute an article, use the Feedback link to get in touch with us.
With falling union membership and an increasingly hostile mainstream media, we are indeed living in interesting times.
Labor Council is committed to being at the forefront of the war to win back our membership base by establishing an active presence in cyberspace. Hope you will join us.
