Quotes attributable to Australian Council of Trade Unions (ACTU) President Ged Kearney:

“The ACTU welcomes the submission from the ACT Government in support of our claim for 10 days of paid family and domestic leave to be included in all modern awards.”

“The ACTU’s case, which is currently before the Fair Work Commission, has received widespread support from governments and business alike.

“The ACT Government joins the Victorian Government, the Queensland Government, the Human Rights Commission and the National Retailers Association, among others, in calling for 10 days paid leave to be a minimum safety net entitlement for Australian workers subjected to family and domestic violence.”

“The support for our case is a testament to Australia’s commitment to ending this scourge against women.”
