Emergency Workers and Parental Bereavement Private Member Bills: Win!
By Becca McCarthy
The “Parental Bereavement Bill” was voted through by MPs. We’re suddenly much closer to guaranteeing some paid time-off from work, for any parent who has lost their child.
MPs also voted through the “Emergency Workers Bill”. That means we are one step closer to getting tough action to stop paramedics, nurses and other emergency workers getting attacked at work.
We’ll get back in touch next week with more info on what happened, and what we are going to do next.
