Aged care day of action - 1 March


The Aged Care Royal Commission’s final report will mean nothing unless the Morrison Federal Government commits to act on its recommendations.

Join our day of action on Monday 1 March to ensure our federal politicians realise aged care is an issue all Australians care about.

On the day, you can:

  1. Attend a local event
  2. Call your local MP/Senator
  3. Spread the word on Facebook

Attend an event or call your MP/Senator

The QNMU is organising events outside federal MP/Senators' offices. Join us from 10am (Mackay event to start at 11am) as we ask our politicians to sign our campaign pledge. If you can't attend, you can give them a call on the day using the numbers below:

  • Warren Entsch (Cairns) - 200 Mulgrave Road, Cairns (call on the day - 07 4051 2220)
    Please note: The Cairns event has been postponed due to bad weather. We will notify registrants of a new date and time for the event in due course.

Let us know you’ll help out by completing this form (we’ll be in touch closer to the day of action).

Every member of parliament is responsible for fixing the crisis in aged care, but we’re focusing our attention on the above politicians for now, as their voices are crucial in moving the federal government to act. However, if you would like to help organise an event outside your local MP’s office, let us know by emailing

Spread the word on Facebook

If you can't attend an event or make a call, you can help us spread the word on Facebook that the time has come for the federal government to fix aged care. Simply head to the QNMU Facebook page on 1 March to share our graphic. 

This pandemic has made you worried about your job - let’s make our federal politicians worry about theirs too.
