Reference: AG2012/10749 Corporate Venue & Event Management Pty Ltd / Media Entertainment Arts Alliance (Casual Employees) Enterprise Agreement 2012-2015

http://www.fwc.gov.au/documents/agreements/fwa/AE897012.pdf

The pay scales under the Security Services Industry Award 2012-2013 for an employee in NSW at the time this agreement was voted on was: 

Security Officer Level 1  Ordinary Rate - $17.93 ph - with transitional casual loading rate for 2012-2013 of 21% - $21.70 ph

Security Officer Level 2  Ordinary Rate - $18.44 ph - with transitional casual loading rate for 2012-2013 of 21% - $22.31 ph

If we apply the shift allowances and weekend loadings to the casual rate you will see how much these workers are deprived from other workers working under the pay and conditions of the Security Services Industry Award 2010

Working between the hrs 1800 to 0600 hrs:

Casual Security Officer Level 1  Casual Rate - $21.70 ph + Night Span Allowance at 21.7% - $3.89 = $25.59 minus agreement rate $22.29 = $3.30 ph worse off

Casual Security Officer Level 2  Casual Rate - $22.31 ph + Night Span Allowance at 21.7% - $4.00 = $26.31 minus agreement rate $24.32 = $1.99 ph worse off

Working Saturdays

Casual Security Officer Level 1  Casual Rate - $21.70 ph + Saturday Penalty Rate at 50% - $8.96 = $30.66 minus agreement rate $22.29 = $8.37 ph worse off

Casual Security Officer Level 2  Casual Rate - $22.31 ph + Saturday Penalty Rate at 50% - $9.22 = $31.53 minus agreement rate $24.32 = $7.21 ph worse off

Working Sundays

Casual Security Officer Level 1  Casual Rate - $21.70 ph + Sunday Penalty Rate at 100% - $17.93 = $39.63 minus agreement rate $22.29= $17.34 ph worse off

Casual Security Officer Level 2  Casual Rate - $22.31 ph + Sunday Penalty Rate at 100% - $18.44 = $40.75 minus agreement rate $24.32 = $16.43 ph worse off

These wage rate differences are for the 2012-2013 period which makes the rates for the following years well below the foreseeable wage rates for the Security Services Industry Award 2012.

How does this agreement pass the ‘Better Off Overall Test’ when these allowances and penalties are applied?

In my opinion this processes to approve this agreement are flawed. If we take a similar agreement Bravo 1 Security Services Pty Ltd Enterprise Agreement 2012

http://www.fwc.gov.au/documents/agreements/fwa/AE897551.pdf

This agreement has been thoroughly researched by Fair Work Australia to make sure the agreement complied with ‘Better Off Overall Test’.

In my opinion the Corporate Venue & Event Management Pty Ltd / Media Entertainment Arts Alliance (Casual Employees) Enterprise Agreement 2012-2015 is an agreement meant to defraud prospective employees, suspiciously negotiated by a union which is either incompetent or corrupt, approved by a commission process which is indifferent and inept.
