It’s time to deliver Paid Maternity Leave! ACTU campaign
Working women, families and unions are sending a message to the ALP Government that we want to see a new national Paid Maternity Leave scheme in the 2009 Federal Budget.
It will be good for the economy, good for employers and good for families. Mums need time to recover from their birth and time to bond with their newborn and adjust to motherhood. We also know that families will spend the money they receive; giving an extra stimulus to the economy.
