Worth Fighting for by Kathie Muir
Book DescriptionThe 'Your Rights at Work' campaign was an unprecedented campaign in Australia's political history and it aroused great public interest. This book presents an in-depth account of the campaign, based on over 60 interviews with key union leaders, rank and file members and non-union community supporters. It is based on 18 months of close study of the campaign, including the author spending 6 months on the campaign trail. Over 5000 Australians were actively involved in the 'YRaW' campaign, as well as every union in Australia and 24 marginal seats in every state.It was published on the first anniversary of the 2007 federal election when the Rudd government came to power, and it is widely recognised that the 'YRaW' campaign influenced the result of this election. This is the only book currently on the market to document the 'YRaW' campaign. This book tells the story of the ACTU's 'Your Rights at Work' campaign against Work Choices, the largest, most expensive and most sophisticated political campaign ever mounted in Australia, and one with a decisive impact on the 2007 federal election.
