Child safety workers striking today

GLADSTONE child safety workers are striking in front of Glenn Butcher's office this morning in protest over low wages.

Workers from the Together Union will gather from 9am in response to a zero per cent wage offer increase over the next three years.

Thousands of childcare workers have already gone on strike across the country since the beginning of the month.
