Casualisation is endemic in the retail and fast food industries.

For many years, even part-time employment has also been undermined by sell out agreements which changed part-time work to be forms of casual employment. Even now, SDA continues to try and make deals which undermine job security.

In 2018 and 2019, RAFFWU ran a major case to stop fast food employers and SDA from destroying job security in the minimum conditions Fast Food Industry Award. We won that historic case and now part-time workers at Domino’s Pizza and McDonald’s have set shifts because of our work.

In 2021, RAFFWU won landmark automatic conversion rights through the direct action of members at the Better Read Than Dead bookshop.

In 2022 and 2023, RAFFWU has assisted many workers convert to ongoing employment where they had regular employment.

Much more needs to still be done.
