The Australian Council of Trade Unions launched its national “Change the Rules” campaign in Perth on September 21. The campaign seeks to push for pro-worker changes to the Fair Work Act.

ACTU secretary Sally McManus said: “We need to change the rules at work so working people can’t be held to ransom by bad employers who will use loopholes to cancel agreements, cut pay and slash conditions.”

McManus said workers have had their pay and conditions stripped by laws that allow companies to terminate enterprise agreements, keep wages low, cut penalty rates and support mass casualisation and wage theft.
