One Minute Message Contest
Why not start 2014 off right by shooting some video on how unions stand up for fairness, deliver good jobs and better lives, and how unions fight for a better deal for everyone?
It’s easy! All you need is a video camera, a script and some friends to help put it all together. Then simply enter our One Minute Message contest and you could have the chance to win $2000.00.
Show the world what FAIRNESS WORKS means for you, your family and your community.
Clever, creative, inspiring, ironic, perhaps with a sense of humour – whatever it takes to get your message across with impact and to make it stick in people’s minds.
The best video will be one that effectively shows that unions remain the best way for working people to get a fair deal, decent wages, safe and healthy workplaces, fairness and respect.
