Do you ever feel like you never really switch off from work and can’t find the work/life balance everyone talks about?

You’re not alone:

              Each week, the average worker loses 4.6 hours in unpaid overtime. That’s more than a full day’s work each fortnight.

              70% of workers support the call for the Federal Government to nationally legislate the right to disconnect.

The right to disconnect is becoming a reality across the world – in countries from France to Spain, Canada, Argentina, and Ireland - it’s time for Australia to act.

We should all have the right to switch off when the working day is done and do the things we enjoy, like spending time with family, loved ones and friends.

Your union supports your right to a decent work/life balance – join fellow members to support our right to clock off and switch off. Sign the petition here.
