Union push for weekend casual pay rises

The Australian, August 6, 2018

The shop assistants union is pushing for pay rises for tens of thousands of casual retail workers employed on Saturdays and weeknights, prompting employer claims that higher labour costs will force businesses to cut trading hours and reduce work available to young people.

The Fair Work Commission will this month convene hearings into the long-running claim by the union to increase loadings paid to casual workers on Saturdays and after 6pm on weeknights. https://www.theaustralian.com.au/national-affairs/industrial-relations/union-push-for-weekend-casual-pay-rises/news-story/282d5b325b262484000801173725622e
