I invite you to join me at a special event being hosted by the ASU on Tuesday, 30th November at 1:00pm to discuss the union movement’s campaign for universal paid family & domestic violence leave, and the funding, policy and legal reforms that are needed in Australia to eradicate violence against women.
This online meeting will mark the United Nations 16 Days of Activism Against Gendered Violence.
- Hear from Union members working in women’s services about why we need 10 days’ paid DV leave as part of the National Employment Standard (NES) as they share their experiences of supporting women who are experiencing family violence.
- Learn how you and your colleagues can help ensure our workplaces are safer for women experiencing DV.
We will hear from ACTU President Michele O’Neil discussing how this campaign has been adopted by the entire union movement, including our Union, and what this means for workers across the country.
Senator Jenny McAllister will detail how members working on the front-line are key in terms of informing national policy and ensuring social equality.
I hope to see you there!
