UNIONSACT is criticising employers who are using the coronavirus crisis to coerce workers out of permanent employment and into casual jobs.
“It is deeply distressing to hear that some employers are using the coronavirus crisis to coerce vulnerable workers out of their permanent jobs,” says UnionsACT secretary Alex White.
“Employers should know that this is illegal, and any worker that has experiencing this should contact their union immediately.
“Businesses have now received access to billions in stimulus and should do the right thing and protect job security, not worsen it.”
However, despite the stimulus package, announced by Prime Minister Scott Morrison yesterday (March 22), businesses across the country are saying they will not see any of the money fast enough.
The same has been said, by Opposition Leader Alistair Coe, on the Canberra stimulus package announced by Chief Minister Andrew Barr on Friday.
