Details about the lobbying activity

It’s time to talk about better leave support for Yukon workers.
Fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic is being shouldered by workers and families across the Yukon. It’s been rough.

Many employees have no access to sick days or special leave time. When it comes to self-isolating, caring for others or dealing with a family crisis, they’re on their own.
