WA Penalty Rates Campaign - Unions WA

WA Penalty Rates Campaign


Penalty rates are an important source of income for those who are low paid.  Penalty rates also put a check on work intruding on time with family and friends.   

The Liberal National Government is running a review of our workplace relations laws that has recommended a savage cut in penalty rates pay to be lowered by 25%. The federal government has refused to rule out this penalty rates pay cut which will mostly affect low paid working people. 

UnionsWA has been active in the media and community on this issues.
