End NDAs Activist Network Organising

We're organising to end the misuse of NDAs.

• As part of 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Based Violence, workers across Victoria hosted meetings about NDAs. More than 30 workplace meetings were held, and thousands of postcards signed that will add to more than 3,000 signatures on the online petition.

• Additionally, CPD training on the ethical issues surrounding the use of NDAs in sexual harassment settlement agreements was provided for lawyers and legal professionals organised in partnership with the Australian Services Union (who represent legal practitioners) and Maurice Blackburn Lawyers with 50 practitioner attendees.

• There is now an established NDA Activist Network that meets monthly to plan actions for the campaign and receive training. Activists have hosted more than 25 community activities to end the misuse of NDAs including workplace meetings, street stalls, train station handouts and events.

• We have hosted more than 15 educational briefings for members, officials and activists both online and at various events.

• An NDA tip line allows workers who have signed NDAs to safely disclose their experiences of signing an NDA.
