ASU members have led the campaign for 10 days paid family and domestic violence leave and we have won!

Yesterday afternoon, the Fair Work Commission made an in-principle decision that 2.66 million workers covered by modern awards should have access to 10 days paid Family and Domestic Violence Leave.

While we await the final details, this is an historic step and will be life changing for women experiencing family violence.

The very first family violence leave in an enforceable industrial agreement anywhere in the world was negotiated by the Australian Services Union Vic/Tas Branch in 2010 at Surf Coast Shire Council.

Paid family and domestic violence leave can give a woman – and it nearly always is a woman – the time, support and job security she needs to escape and recover from an abusive relationship.

To cover all workers, we need at least 10 days paid family and domestic violence leave in the National Employment Standards. Sign the petition here - www.megaphone.org.au/petitions/we-won-t-wait-because-women-can-t-wait

What about the workplace delegate who used their own initiative to bring it to the attention of the organisers? History cannot be changed.
