    Important Developing Story

    A story carrying strong resemblance to RSDU’s initiated FWO investigation into Uber is now being heard in the Federal court. This is a very interesting case because just like in Uber’s case it examines the rates contracted workers are able to earn per hour based on work on demand, or in that case ‘pay per-piece/kg Mushrooms picked’ as opposed to being paid the award hourly rates for time spent on the job as required by law.

    If successful, this case has the potential to affect the entire on-demand gig economy and force companies to stick to minimum award level, hourly pay rates and stop circumventing Australia’s known stringent fair work laws, a practice that has the potential to take us all back more than 100 years to the days of borderline slavery with very little take home pay.

    The RSDU can only hope to see the same action taken against Uber by the FWO in due course. Current FWO investigation is still ongoing. We will be posting an update as soon as we have more news.
