Staff at Metro train who experience domestic violence will receive paid leave to attend medical, legal and other appointments.
Luba Grigorovitch, Union Organiser, said female members first raised domestic violence as a growing concern some two years ago.
A spokeswoman for Metro said that the company wanted the best for its staff.
Municipal Councils, including Brimbank & Greater Geelong, already have similar domestic violence clauses in their workplace deals.
Brian Boyd, Trades Hall Council Secretary, said the agreement gave impetus to other sectors, such as state public servants, to negotiate similar schemes.
