The Breakaway Campaign (2015)
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.

Hanging on by a thread?
You take pride in our work. While employers cut and restructure, your dedication gets the job done every day. Your work is important and you take it seriously. You are professionals. But there’s a downside to ‘going above and beyond the call of duty’. You’ve told us you’re hanging on by a thread, burning-out, expected to work free overtime and don’t enough resources and supports to do your job effectively. We want to make things rights. Keep checking back for more information about The Workload Project.
