PPL thanks

Say thanks to the parties protecting new parents' time at home

This election Fair Agenda secured pledges from the Nick Xenophon Team, Jacqui Lambie Network, Greens and ALP to vote against any cuts to paid parental leave.

Together, these parties hold the majority of seats in the new Senate, which means their votes will stop the Government from cutting the parental leave of tens of thousands of new parents. 

It's a great commitment from these four parties, which will make a huge difference to tens of thousands of working parents, and their newborns.

With so much at stake, it's vital we not only thank these Senators for pledging to protect new parents' time at home -- but also show them we're still ready to mobilise and hold them accountable for their promise. 

Can you help by sharing a thank you message for the Senators pledged, sharing why protecting parental leave matters to you?

Being able to afford to spend time at home caring for your new baby is precious.

Thank you for your pledge to vote against any cuts to paid parental leave.


Fair Agenda will email petition signers from time to time with important updates

"Paid parental leave is invaluable to parents of a newborn. When a baby arrives it can be a highly stressful time because of the change in family dynamics and balancing the needs of the child."

"I’ve been fortunate enough to take a year of laid leave with my firstborn son. I can’t imagine going back to work sooner when he’s so little. Being at home allows me to breastfeed for longer and support my son in all the developmental challenges he faces in the first year. It’s also been a massive adjustment to our lives as a family and being at home makes it that much easier for us to adjust. I realise that I lose out on super and developing my career during this time, but I wouldn’t change it for the world."
