Are you a casual worker? Hunter Workers want to hear from you

Casual work was originally limited to those rare cases where an employer could not cover the workload with permanent workers because of unforeseen workload peaks or temporary short-term staff shortages. It was closely regulated in awards and agreements to protect permanent work.

Today things have changed. Employers use casual and other insecure work arrangements to cover entire work functions. Casualisation and insecure work have led to Australia having more inequality now than at any time on record.

Hunter Workers is inviting you to share your experience with insecure work, Secretary Leigh Shears explained it to Tracy Mac on Newcastle Live Radio.
