Weekend Rates (Still) Under Threat
"Penalty rates decision delayed by Fair Work Commission"
The Australian-8 Sep. 2016
Any change to weekend rates would hit hundreds of thousands of weekend workers with a sudden pay cut they can’t afford and don’t deserve.
The Fair Work Commission – the organisation that will decide the future of weekend rates for weekend workers – was initially expected to hand down their decision sometime in August.
It has now been delayed – and when it’ll be announced is anyone’s guess.
But that doesn’t mean we’ll play ‘wait and see’.
The Save our Weekend campaign is continuing to promote the message that weekends matter and weekend workers deserve fair compensation for missing out.
But we can’t do it alone – it’s about strength in numbers and maximising that message.
Get involved now – together we can Save our Weekend.
