Secure Employment
2019
The
Amalgamated Engineering Union
of Australia began representing the interests of Australian engineering workers in 1852.

The union's original banner declared its aims to be: 'Secure Employment and Wage Justice with Greater Leisure in a Peaceful World.' 

This contemporary artwork re-states those ideas as a reminder that secure employment and wage justice are still far from guaranteed.

For example,
zero-hour contracts
are becoming increasingly common in the UK.

'Secure Employment' is part of socialart.work, a mass public art project by public artist
Martin Firrell
calling for greater social justice.

It aims to create debate about power and gender, women's equality and masculinity, alternative forms of economic and social organisation, black power, and solidarity between people from different backgrounds and ethnicities.

It includes posters, publications and events supported in 2018-19 by the artist's residency with leading Out of Home media company
Clear Channel UK.
