Same Job Same Pay laws have been introduced to Federal Parliament.
Workplace Relations Minister Tony Burke today tabled the Closing Loopholes Bill in the House of Representatives. The Bill stops employers paying labour hire workers less than rates agreed in an Enterprise Agreement at a host company, where the same work is performed. It enables workers and their unions to seek a Same Job Same Pay order through the Fair Work Commission.
This is an important moment in our campaign – but the Closing Loopholes Bill still needs to get through the House of Representatives and Senate!
We’ll keep campaigning until the laws pass both houses of Parliament and start lifting wages for labour hire workers.
