Sign the petition for Respect at Work

Everyone deserves to feel safe and respected in their workplace. 

Many of us know, through personal experience or from our loved ones, that this is not the reality for most women at work. Sexual harassment and sexism is a serious workplace health and safety issue that impacts everyone. 

In 2021, we saw these stories on the front page of newspapers and tens of thousands of women take to the streets to demand respect at work. There is more work to do – and now is the right time to push for safer workplaces. 

The Queensland Government hasn’t moved fast enough to change the laws that keep workers safe. Enough is enough. The government needs to step up to be a leader and part of the solution.

Together members are calling for the Attorney General, Shannon Fentiman, on behalf of the Queensland Government, to implement critical sexual harassment reforms in the Industrial Relations Act, the Anti-discrimination Act and in Work Health and Safety. 

Union members have a history of standing up and winning for women’s rights at work and in our community.  

Women make an invaluable contribution to our workplaces, our homes and our communities. Together, we can make sure Queensland women get the respect they deserve at work and change our workplaces for the better.
