PLEDGE: PORTABLE LONG SERVICE LEAVE SCHEME

Today I had the pleasure of meeting with members of the Australian Services Union working in the community service sector, Tanya Corrie, Anna Wark and Stephen Mason, along with their organiser Sean McCourt.

I signed the pledge to advance the argument for the need of a portable long service leave scheme for community and social sector workers.

It is important that portable long service leave is made accessible for Victoria’s approximate 100,000 social and community sector workers in order to retain workers within the sector and ensure that they are aptly rewarded for their long years of service and hard work.
