Time to get real about working women’s rights
As a union with 78 per cent female membership, the Australian Services Union sees examples day in and day out of working women struggling to balance a career and a family. As a society we have been advocating for balance for decades, and most would agree that workplaces that fail to provide family-friendly environments risk their productivity and losing skilled workers.
The COVID-19 pandemic has shown the importance of flexible working arrangements. Lack of adequate paid parental leave across many Australian industries means women still don’t get the support they need to give a child the best start in life while also managing their career progression.
There are huge challenges facing working women in Australia. Real solutions are needed, and we’re by your side to fight for them.
