Talk to your politician


Meeting with politicians – whether they’re Members of Parliament, Senators or candidates for your area – is essential to building support for our campaign.

Election time means that politicians are most concerned about what matters to their constituents. We need to make sure they know how important Safe Rates is to everyone in our electorate now.

That’s why truck drivers and our supporters in our communities across the country are meeting with politicians and candidates.
