Scabby protest against CUB

Union members protest outside Parliament House, Canberra.

About 40 members of Unions ACT, CPSU, United Voice, retired workers' organisation Vintage Reds, Socialist Alliance and the AMWU and ETU from Melbourne, representing the unions covering the 55 sacked workers from Carlton United Breweries, along with their inflatable anti-mascot, "Scabby the Rat", protested on November 22 on the front lawns of Parliament House.

The gathering was addressed by Brendan O'Connor, ALP Shadow Minister for Industrial Relations, who said the CUB 55 fight was for all workers, as many employers were attempting the same tactic of sacking and rehiring on lower wages and conditions.
