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.

Promises a gold class scheme – then tries to take 4 months pay off new mothers. Tony Abbott can’t be trusted.

By cutting PPL to those who have any access to maternity leave the government are effectively making it more difficult for women to re-enter the workforce and access childcare for older children. The model was designed to be used in conjunction with employer’s leave and the new cuts demonstrate the government’s complete disregard for women.

This will be detrimental to the future of Australia. Children need to spend as much quality time at home with a parent in the early stages of their life as possible. Don’t take this opportunity away from the children of Australia.

Face to face teaching is only possible after on or offsite preparation without child. To assume that teaching is only in the classroom is be ignorant of what teaching entails.

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?
