IMPLEMENTATION OF THE INDEPENDENT REVIEW INTO COMMONWEALTH PARLIAMENTARY WORKPLACES
Labor will work towards the implementation of all recommendations of Set the Standard, the Australian Human Rights Commission’s Report on the Independent Review into Commonwealth Parliamentary Workplaces.
Today the Labor Caucus met in Canberra, and passed a unanimous resolution to act on the deeply concerning findings of Commissioner Kate Jenkins released this week.
Most importantly, we reaffirmed our commitment to consult with our parliamentary and electorate staff, relevant unions, and workplace representatives as we work towards this implementation.
Our staff are our priority in this process. This is their workplace, and they deserve nothing less than a safe and supportive work environment.
Labor has a long-held commitment to ensure our parliamentary workplaces are safe and respectful for everyone, and to gender equality, including the need to promote and support women’s leadership in the Parliament.
We thank every current and former staff member and parliamentarian who contributed to the Review. Each of you has contributed to making our workplace a safer place for everyone.
