Australia is where this story starts.
The Australian Council of Trade Unions, in its congress, declares on February 27:
There is no place in Australian society for discrimination on the basis of race, colour, sex, marital status, sexual orientation, age, religion, political opinion, physical appearance, physical or mental impairment, criminal record, national extraction or social origin. The Union Movement is committed to equality of opportunity and treatment in society generally and in employment and occupation in particular.
