From the looks of it, MSS Security did a lot deceiving and dirty tricks to get this collective agreement approved for Victoria. The FWC failed to do its duty to look out for its people(the tax payer) to make sure the agreement passed the BOOT test. This is why they are able to get away by paying employees a flat rate of 31$ for special events.

These are there current pay rates, but they do not apply for special events such as the cup carnival.

...

I cannot believe that idiot employees voted for such agreement. I can from experience, verify that most are casuals and do not give a damn. So I would not be surprise that they hire extra people and paid them 500$ bonus to vote yes. Also, most of them, do not have a great command of the English language. How did they manage to get a security licence? Who knows.... Shocked

I doubt Java Security could supply the manpower required for the Spring Carnival on their own.
They'd have to engage subcontractors of their own, for an even lesser hourly amount.

If you're worried about the quality at $23 per hour what do you reckon you'll get at $15 per hour? Shocked

No one company can supply their own staff in such numbers for such events over such periods of time.

Sub-contracting is a necessary evil in Security unfortunately. More so nowadays also in that many clients want bottom dollar prices.

I have been told that MSS Security sub contracted Java Security ABN: 71 798 675 243 to perform security at the Melbourne Cup 2014. These security guards were paid at a flat rate of $23 per hour. The current rate for casuals working on a public holiday $57.23 per hour.

I wonder how much Victoria Racing Club paid MSS for security. They sure did not get 'the highest calibre security personnel' that MSS advertise to supply clients. Just a bunch of desperate people with security licences. The VRC should have gone to Java Security and contracted with them and saved heaps.  Wink
