Did you know?

Did you know casual award-based employees in aged care and social & community services including disability will be paid the 25% casual loading on top of their penalty rates for working Saturday,Sunday and public holidays from July 1, 2020?

Do you even get penalty rates for working Saturdays?

This is happening because HACSU and other unions have pushed for and won this change, and the main reason we achieve great outcomes like this is because these sectors are highly unionised.

Are your working conditions good? Are you on an agreement or an award? Is your employer fair and equitable? Do you always receive all your entitlements? Will asking for entitlements make your employment insecure? Have you ever been told ‘you’re lucky to have a job’ as a reason why something isn’t paid?

These are all good questions.

If you don’t think you get your fair share, or feel there’s an imbalance going on and want to see change, then contact us so we can chat about how to fix things by giving HACSU members a stronger voice at work.
