The Fair Work Commission has decided to terminate the Aerocare Collective Agreement 2012 thanks to a union challenge because Swissport employees are worse off under the 2012 Agreement than they would be if they were covered by the Airlines Award. The 2012 agreement pays below award rates on weekends and public holidays. The company is allowed to roster workers for as little as 3 hours and can force them to work split shifts. This means that a worker could be on duty for 12 hours and only receive 6 hours pay.
This is a big win for Swissport workers, and takes us one step closer to negotiating a fair agreement.
