The PEI Union of Public Sector Employees is calling for paid leave from work for victims of domestic abuse.
UPSE President Karen Jackson supports the idea and says PEI should follow the lead of Ontario and Manitoba.
Systems are already in place in those provinces to allow paid leave for victims of domestic abuse.
The Island government would have to make changes to the Employment Standards Act to make that happen.
Jackson says changes to the Act could save a life.
In Ontario and Manitoba, employees receive five paid and five unpaid days of leave.
B-C and New Brunswick are also looking into changes.
Jackson says it would help all Islanders.
