Former Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard congratulates members of the Australian Services Union for winning Equal Pay. Julia Gillard was Prime Minister in 2012 when union members won Equal Pay for community and disability workers in Australia. Today, workers are between $200 and $650 better off each week thanks to the campaign.
Reports continue to show that there has been an alarming increase in violence against women during the COVID-19 pandemic.
For many people experiencing family violence, their workplace is the only safe place. It is a space where arrangements can be safely made to leave family violence. Working from home has now made workplaces unsafe for many workers.
In association with Unions NSW and RDVSA, the ASU has developed a guide to "Working From Home - when home isn't safe".
Community and Disability workers are celebrating winning Equal Pay. Workers are between $200 and $650 better off each week because the Australian Services Union won Equal Pay.
