FDV leave: ASU members have their say
- Created on Wednesday, 06 December 2017 08:07
During the last week of #16DaysOfActivism we feature videos of ASU members sharing their views about why WE WON'T WAIT for the critical assistance that can be provided by a minimum of 10 days' paid family & domestic violence leave in the National Employment Standards (NES).
Over a million Australian workers already have access to this leave via the efforts of their unions negotiating enterprise agreements, but the ASU and union movement in general believes it should be a universal right for all workers via the NES because it's a small measure that can deliver huge results to deal with the scourge of violence in our communities.
**16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence: a yearly international campaign to challenge violence against women and girls from 25 November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, to 10 December, Human Rights Day.
Thanks to Unions NSW for putting the video together.
