New Government to enact Universal Paid Domestic Violence leave ASAP

17 June 2022

“As soon as possible.”

BREAKING: Tony Burke commits to 10 days paid domestic violence leave "as soon as possible"

The Federal Government has written to the Fair Work Commission committing to introduce universal paid leave for family and domestic violence.

This is a huge win for ASU members who have been behind the We Won't Wait campaign for 8 years.

We have already won paid domestic violence leave for millions of workers, including in all Awards in Australia.

ASU Secretary Natalie Lang said: "This is a huge victory and congratulations to all ASU members and all of our sisters and brothers who've been part of this campaign with us."
