CORONAVIRUS: Union Members Demand Paid Sick Leave For Casuals

We are demanding that the Morrison Government provide a detailed economic support package for the 3.3 million Australians who have no access to paid sick leave.

Why is this important?

As Australians, we stick together with our mates – we don’t leave people behind.

But there are 3.3 million Australian workers with no access to paid leave – this represents 32% of all working people.

If these workers become ill they will either attend work sick, be stood down by their employer without pay or potentially be subject to self-isolation quarantine at home without means to pay their bills.

We are demanding that the Morrison Government provide a detailed economic support package for the 3.3 million Australians who have no access to paid leave.

Sign this petition to demand access to paid sick leave for casual workers affected by Coronavirus (COVID-19).
