March of The Mummies Launches

Parental Pay Equality are partnering with international pressure group Pregnant Then Screwed to support their March of the Mummies. We will be marching to Westminster from Trafalgar Square this Halloween ( Tuesday 31s t October 2017 from 12 till 2pm ) to highlight a number of maternity discrimination issues, including lack of shared parental pay for the self-employed. The five demands we will be taking to governement are:

  1. Increase the time limit to raise a tribunal claim from 3 months to (at least) 6 months
  2. Require companies to report on how many flexible working requests are made and howmany are granted
  3. Give fathers access to 6 weeks non-transferable paternity leave paid at 90% of salary
  4. Give the self-employed access to statutory shared parental pay
  5. Subsidise childcare from 6 months old, rather than 3 years
