As Australia re-opens the economy after successfully suppressing the spread of coronavirus we have to take necessary steps to protect the community from a second wave of infection.
Those steps include these 3 things;
- Paid pandemic leave for all workers who need to be tested, to self-isolate or to recover from COVID-19, this includes casuals, contractors and anyone else that we have a regular contract with,
- Stronger, clearer and more consistent work health and safety laws, and
- COVID aware workplaces
Our union is working with other Australian unions in a national campaign to achieve these goals. To succeed we all need to get involved.
- Visit this website https://covidaware.australianunions.org.au/ and fill in the checklist to see how COVID Aware your workplace is.
- Use the tools available on the website to have conversations at work and ask your employer to support the campaign to reduce the risk of a second wave of COVID-19 infections.
