Support R&CA to help save the industry

iStock_000009040043LargeRestaurant & Catering Association (R&CA) secured a 25 per cent reduction (for grades one and two) of the Sunday penalty rate for casual staff in the Modern Award Review, and recently successfully blocked an attempt by United Voice to overturn this penalty rate reduction in the Federal Court.

However, cases like this cost the industry significant amounts in legal fees.

Almost $2 million has been spent on achieving the 25 per cent reduction of Sunday penalty rates and changes to the classifications under the Restaurant Industry Award.

R&CA is now continuing to pursue penalty rate reform during the four-yearly review of Modern Awards in the Fair Work Commission, including the Hospitality Industry (General) Award, Restaurant Industry Award and Fast Food Industry Award. Please visit to make a donation.
