For 20 years the SDA and KFC teamed up to make dodgy back room deals which smash worker rights. In return, KFC recruited workers to the SDA.
In 2019, KFC negotiated a new agreement which while better for many workers, left workers still much worse off than the minimum Award. RAFFWU represented members in those negotiations and fought for a much better deal.
Part-time minimum hours under the Modern Award must be contracted for set shifts. The new agreement doesn’t do that and leaves workers in employment akin to casual employment albeit without the casual loading.
Our campaigns have returned many of the penalty rates long denied workers which have cost many workers tens of thousands of dollars. RAFFWU is the fighting union for KFC workers.
