The Breakaway Campaign (2015-2016)

We recently surveyed our members in Administrative Services (aka Component 12) about workload. Here's what we found out:

  • 58 per cent of you said your position isn’t adequately backfilled while you’re on vacation or leave.
  • 65 per cent of you told us your workplace isn’t adequately staffed.

By and large, your workloads are unmanageable. It's time that changed.

That's why we've created the Breakaway campaign. 

Find out about the origins of Breakaway: The Workload Project.
