Dodgy bosses at Macca's

We're playing a bit more music this week as we adjust to a lack of Feargal in the studio. In this episode we have a short interview with McDonald's worker, Retail and Fast Food Workers Union member and newest addition to the Workers Power 4ZZZ team, Jason Harradine. We talk about RAFFWU winning penalty rates for Maccas workers, and the response from the dodgy bosses in trying to cut workers hours. If you are a McDonald's worker, you do not have to sign a new agreement. If your boss is telling you that you do, get them to put it in writing, and record the interaction yourself. For more information you can watch this 11 minute video.

New Year, same system.

As we come into the new year we have a full house of Workers Power contributers in the studio: Feargal, Bill, Hannah, Steven, and Darrel, the Together union delegate at CITEC. In this episode we talk to Darrel about working and organising at CITEC, and what it is like to organise your workplace as a public servant.
We also go over all our scallywags this year and make the grand decision, who will be the scallywag of the year?
