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.
Much more needs to still be done.
We are running campaigns at Woolworths and Coles to help casual workers convert to ongoing employment. To participate in those campaigns join RAFFWU and complete our campaign form at www.tinyurl.com/supersjobsecurity
