From lowest to highest paid - Wongawilli workers' massive win

Published: 19 Mar 2019

The casualised workforce at Wongawilli had a massive win when they joined the union and took the boss on collectively.

The previously un-unionised site was the lowest paid in the Southern District. The trend for permanent, well paid jobs to be converted into poorly paid, insecure jobs has become the reality for many workers across the country. This win proves that the trend can be turned around when labour hire workers join their union.
