protect penalty rates

Weekends still mean something in Australia. A night out with friends, catching a match or playing with your kids. But for the people who serve us in restaurants and shops, care for our elderly and attend to us in emergencies, weekends are another workday.  Weekend penalty rates mean you can be compensated for working when everyone else is relaxing and enjoying time with family and friends. Getting rid of weekend rates would mean a sudden pay cut to workers who can’t afford it, and don’t deserve it.  But that's exactly what many employers are trying to do. They are demanding the Fair Work Commission cut weekend penalty rates.

It's time to stand up and save our weekend.

So join us at MIDDAY on Wednesday 23 September at State Parliament and let's make some noise!

September 23, 2015 at 12pm - 1pm
