Help ensure we win paid vaccine leave for everyone

The impact of COVID-19 has been enormous – on us, our families, our customers, and our community.

​The COVID-19 vaccine is how we can keep everyone safe. It must be accessible to everyone eligible to receive it. Pledge your support for paid vaccination leave.

You have told us that the time it takes to receive the vaccine and potentially sick leave to manage any side effects is a barrier to getting vaccinated. Our employers have a critical role to play.

We call on all employers in the finance sector to provide staff with two days of paid leave to receive a vaccine and time to manage any side effects.

People working at Woolworths, Bunnings, Kmart, and Target all have access to paid leave to help them to get a vaccine. You deserve the same.

If this leave is important to you, and if you want to be counted, pledge your support for this vital entitlement here.
