Club workers are facing an attack on their working conditions. Their employers are right now considering whether to abolish the clubs award, and with it the weekend penalty rates that help club workers pay the bills.
We know that not every employer is going to take action that will see their workers given a pay cut they can't afford and don't deserve.
To help us focus our efforts we need your help - taking action is easy, below you will find a list of some of the largest clubs in Queensland, click the link below the club name to send an email to them asking for their position on weekend rates, or follow the instructions below about making a call.
Making a Call
Calling the club is easy and immediate. Call the number above, and say you want to talk to the Manager. Tell them that you are concerned about the potential impact to club workers of changes to weekend penalty rates, and that you are seeking an assurance that the club will continue to pay their staff no less than they earn working weekends today, no matter what the outcome of the Fair Work process underway.
The club might try to tell you that they aren't impacted by the decision of the Fair Work Commission and it's "business as usual", politely point out to them that Fair Work provided clubs the opportunity to argue again to cut their workers pay, or abolish the clubs award altogether, and that submissions from employers close this Friday.
Specifically we want to know:
- Will the club publicly commit to continuing to pay weekend penalty rates at the current level no matter what the outcome of the Fair Work Process is; and
- Will the club write to Clubs Queensland and Clubs Australia outlining their opposition to any change.
Once you have finished the call click the button below to report back the outcome.
