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."
After 8 years of hard work, rallies, petitions and lobbying, now it will be a reality as soon as possible.
