Striking firefighters hose down Parliament
“Washing away the foul stench of hypocrisy emanating from Parliament”
NSW firefighters held their first all-out strike in 56 years on June 21, 2012 to protest attacks on workers compensation rights by the O’Farrell Liberal-National state government. Firefighters sealed off Macquarie Street, Sydney, and hosed down Parliament House. We won a partial victory in the form of an exemption of firefighters from the new laws severly restricting workers claims for workplace injuries. However, the fight continues for other workers in NSW.
