The ACTU has commissioned the first ever national inquiry into insecure work. The research will explore the extent and impact of casual, short and fixed term contracts, labour hire and contracting in Australia.
A new report by the ACTU shows that about 40% of Australian workers are employed in insecure forms of employment. These workers, many of them in the transport industry, miss out on regular hours of work, holiday pay, sick leave and much more.
Submissions will open on 2 November. For more information go to www.securejobs.org.au. You can also find more information on Facebook and Twitter.
