Please stand alongside mums, dads and families and add your name to our petition.

To Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull,

Looking after a new child is one of the most important jobs in the world. Please don’t cut working parents’ rights to the current Paid Parental Leave scheme.

Why is this important?

Currently, half of all women who work have access to employer sponsored maternity leave – this includes teachers, nurses and many other women in low paid work, as well as those on middle incomes. Despite the Senate opposing their attempts to cut Paid Parental Leave four times, the Liberals are still trying to cut nearly half a billion dollars from the scheme by stealth. 

The World Health Organisation recommends that new mums spend 26 weeks at home with their babies. The Greens want mums and dads to have more paid time off with their newborns, not less. We're standing for a proper Paid Parental Leave scheme and well-funded childcare that supports all families, especially those on low and middle incomes.
