Access to Free Parking for Victorian Health Workers

Access to Free Parking for Victorian Health Workers

Sign this petition if you believe Victorian health workers deserve free parking at public hospitals

Why is this important?

Our health workers are heroes on the frontline in the fight against COVID-19.

The New South Wales Government knows this. That’s why, in April they decided to provide access to free parking for public hospital workers. The NSW Premier said “we need to do whatever we can to support them during this difficult time”. Too right!

Now, Victoria must do the same. It’s only fair that Victorian health workers are treated with the same level of care and respect as NSW health workers! It’s the right thing to do.

Hospital car parking fees may vary. It is typical for a full-time employee to pay in the order of $50 to $70 for weekly parking fees. It’s even more if workers are relying on casual parking. These parking fees represent a significant slice of a health worker’s disposable income. That’s money that could be spent on weekly groceries!

This is a stressful time for our health workers who are doing vital work to keep our community safe. We must support them.

Please sign the petition.

Reasons for signing

  • i signed this because as a full time final year bachelor of nursing student and working on placement with no pay, i still pay the full amount of parking at any hospital i attend to and its unfair we are learning and helping save lives especially during this pandemic so stressful to worry about parking tickets.
  • I signed because, as a former interpreter, I know that a not negligible part of our earnings goes to pay for (very high) hotel parking fees. I believe that this petition SHOULD be extended to EVERYONE who works in hospitals, including interpreters.
  • We need free parking
