Reference: AG2012/11560 Southern Cross Venue Services Pty Ltd / Media Entertainment Arts Alliance (Casual Employees) Enterprise Agreement 2012-2015

http://www.fwc.gov.au/documents/agreements/fwa/AE897559.pdf

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 $22.70 = $2.89 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 $24.50 = $1.81 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 $22.70 = $7.96 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 $24.50 = $7.03 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 $22.70 = $16.93 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 $24.50 = $16.25 ph worse off

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’. Even though the pay rates were frozen for the period of the agreement, in the undertaking the base pay rate is higher, reflecting the average amount of wage increases over the period of the agreement. There are also undertakings to pay meal allowance and broken shift allowance.

In my opinion Southern Cross Venue Services 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.
