16 days of activism to end gender based violence


ASU officials and members kicked off their 16 days of action to end Gender Violence by attending the launch of the VTHC’s Stop Gender Based Violence at Work clause.

Two ASU delegates, June Cozens, Brimbank Council and Megan Adams South East Water (pictured),  who have participated in VTHC actions to draw attention to the issue, spoke at the launch about the detrimental impacts of the all pervasive gender violence at work on women.

While the clause has been launched, we believe there is a real need for us to discuss the clause as a union and consider our approach to a Stop Gender Based Violence  (GBV) Campaign. If you are interested in participating in a discussion about a GBV Campaign please let us know by emailing jkarslake@asuvictas.com.au

Do you know what you are doing on March 8 for International Women’s Day?
International Women's Day is a day for union women to come together share their learning and ideas to build our capacity to create a better world for women.
Women of the ASU and AMWU will join together to offer our women members two awesome workshops for women who want to change the world.

1. Lift the Silence on Gender Violence
This workshop will explore women's pre-conceptions about gender violence in the workplace and share how through education our ideas and understanding have evolved. We will share tools to help eliminate gender violence in the workplace.

2. A Map to Climb Out of the Gender Pay Gap
A step by step guide to identifying and dismantling the gender pay gap in your workplace. You will leave this forum understanding how the gender pay gap impacts you with a practical tool kit on how you can reduce the gender pay gap in your workplace.
