Reverse the cuts to Paid Parental Leave

We are calling on the Liberal National Government to stand up for working families and reverse the savage and unexpected cuts to Paid Parental Leave.

Working mums and dads are far from rorters, fraudsters and double dippers, they are hardworking people who should receive paid leave to spend time with their precious newborns.

Thanks to the Liberals paid parental leave back-flip on none other than Mother’s Day, 80,000 families now face losing $11,500 from their household budget.

Access to 26 weeks paid parental leave is backed by experts as optimal for the health and well-being of mothers, babies and families, and to support increased participation of mothers in the workforce to boost our economy.

It simply doesn't make social or economic sense to cut paid parental leave. 

It’s time to stop the attacks on working parents – will you sign the petition calling on Treasurer Scott Morrison to reverse the cuts to Paid Parental Leave?

For more information on the cuts head over to our activist HQ where you can download resources and help spread the word that a fully funded government Paid Parental Leave scheme matters.

The statement that women are “double dipping” parental leave is disgraceful and a slur on hundreds of thousands of women. The fact that the Prime Minister styles himself as the Minister for Women and then dares to even think of such policies is insulting.
Where are the pre-budget suggestions of ending “double dipping” of very wealthy superannuants?
Making parents pay is a new low in cynical politics.
Families will know and remember.

Good working people hurt by this extraordinary attack on their right to build decent families. Shocking action by our government.

Pregnant and angry. Parental leave needs to be increased not reduced.

When did accessing a work entitlement become a crime? The Liberal government’s word is only worth something when it supports mining and dirty coal companies.

The Liberal National Government is attempting the unthinkable by ripping away the federally funded Paid Parental Leave entitlement from over half of expectant parents who already have an employer funded scheme.

Before the election the Liberal party promised new mums a fully funded Paid Parental Leave that would allow them to spend six months at home with their new babies. Now they've back-flipped on this promise and plan to tear away even the 18 weeks they currently receive from the government.   

Providing new mums and babies with ample bonding time is critically important for the child's development. Don't let the Liberals take this away from families. 

Will you sign the petition and call on Treasurer Scott Morrison to reverse the cuts to Paid Parental Leave?
