Today, parliament passed a bill that will enshrine 10 days paid Family and Domestic Violence Leave as a workplace right for every worker in Australia.
It is a new workplace right that will literally save lives.
And it is all thanks to the tireless work of hundreds of thousands of union members around this country who stood up and said: Enough words. We need action.
Today’s win comes off the back of a decade of campaigning by the union movement and activists. A decade which has seen us win change, workplace by workplace, agreement by agreement, then in Awards, and now, in the National Employment Standards.
