Retail and Fast Food Workers Union (RAFFWU)

The Retail and Fast Food Workers Union organised a protest on July 6 to demand that penalty rates be reinstated. Penalty rates were cut for the second time in early July. Meanwhile federal MPs gave themselves a pay rise.

The Retail and Fast Food Workers Union (RAFFWU) was formed in late 2016 as a response to growing dissatisfaction among retail workers with the Shop, Distributive and Allied Employees Association (SDA). The Labor right-controlled SDA is notorious for negotiating enterprise bargaining agreements (EBAs) that contain below award wages and eroding the rights and conditions of workers.
