Everyday women are attacked, harassed and threatened – and tragically some women lose their lives to male violence. It needs to stop.
That’s why Unions, including ours, are taking a strong stand against it. And what we do next is critical.
Employers say that this is a ‘private issue’ rather than something we must tackle as a society. They even argue that we should have to trade off other work rights to get it! They are refusing to step up and help to end this crisis.
Survivors have suffered for too long behind closed doors. We all have a part to play in ending violence: it’s time that employers played theirs.
Tell employers everyone has the right to feel safe at work, and everyone should have the right to paid days away from work if they are subjected to family violence.
