“It’s not my problem, it’s my entitlement”

We were thrilled to host some of our incredible Women’s Committee Members last week to start planning our Public Sector Bargaining Agenda.

The room was practically buzzing with shared purpose as we, the backbone of the public sector came together. We are tired. Tired of unfair wages, a lack of support, and disrespected expertise. But anger wasn’t all we brought – we brought data from your survey results, clear demands, and a collective fire.

We focussed our frustration into fierce asks for our next EBA. The bargaining table is our opportunity for a better future, not just for ourselves, but for all working women who follow. Just a few of the burning topics for our focus are:

  • Reproductive Health Leave
  • Flexible Working Arrangements
  • Personal Leave and Compassionate Leave
  • Parental Leave
  • Supporting late stage career women for safe, stable retirement.

We know it won’t be easy, but together, we can turn our anger into action, and our frustration into progress. Watch this space for a full report back from the day and how we plan to use our outcomes in the next round of Public Sector Bargaining!
