We have penalty rates because members of the Australian Services Union fought hard to ensure that workers were fairly rewarded for working difficult hours. From staffing call centres, getting you safely to your destinations in airlines and travel to staffing essential community services, ASU members are working unsociable hours so that others can enjoy their weekends, nights and holidays. They miss out on vital time with friends and family and deserve to be fairly compensated. For many, that compensation helps to make ends meet.
With your help we must fight the changes the Federal Government and employer groups want to make that would tear up our penalty rates. You can:
