Big Brother finalist joins union fight

By JULIA ILES newsroom@dailyexami- ner.com.au

BIG Brother finalist Tim Brunero will be at Grafton's Memorial Park this morning as part of the Unions NSW 'Your Rights at Work' tour.

The tour is designed to bring awareness to the workplace reforms proposed by the Howard Government.

"We are making people aware of significant changes to work place contracts and are keen to hear from locals about the issue," Unions NSW secretary John Robertson said.

"Anyone is welcome, there will be a formal presentation highlighting the proposed changes and later a casual talk-time."

Mr Robertson said his main concern was that workers would be forced into signing individual contracts and be made casual or have holidays cut.

"Many employers cut costs any way they can and if holidays and other benefits are cut the real effect will be on families," Mr Robertson said.

Along with Mr Brunero, Clarence Valley Council mayor Ian Tiley will also attend the event, which starts at 9.30am.
