Government neglects liquor and gambling duty of care
Last week Treasury advised CPSU MAST organiser Steph that it’s proposing to withdraw from the s55 agreement in March. This means Treasury will expect all Compliance Inspectors to put their hand up to work regular overtime. Compliance Inspectors loading started out much higher than 8%, and it has been whittled away over the years as the Government has reduced their out of hours audits. Workers’ duties include casino audits and ensuring compliance at events like music festivals.
Steph is in contact with S55 Members to find out how a drop in out of hours will affect compliance services, stakeholders and the community, not to mention workers’ pay and superannuation. Day workers have indicated to Members they don’t want to do regular overtime. Steph is working with CPSU Organiser Mel on this matter.
