Crown Perth

We’re currently organising around a range of issues at the various Food & Beverage outlets at Crown Perth.

 

Latest wins

Removal of split shifts at Riverside: 

Members at Riverside have won the removal of split shifts from their rosters, after it was introduced in early 2020 with no consultation or reasoning. Workers were spending 2-3 extra hours at work without pay between shifts, missing time with friends and family. It also left the person on the floor doing the work of 3 people during the split shift breaks. Union members started a petition calling on management to meet with them and discuss their concerns. Within 1 week of raising it with management, split shifts were gone from rosters.

SURVIVING COVID

  • Major casino operators Crown and The Star were some of the first companies to agree to paid pandemic leave. We also won two weeks pay for many casino workers who were stood down.
  • Casino workers also won employer hardship funds and payments totalling millions of dollars for workers not eligible for the government wage subsidy, or experiencing other hardships.
  • During the year we kept the union together and strong while casinos were shut, and pivoted quickly to helping members with the practical support they needed in a crisis, e.g. help navigating Centrelink, information on financial assistance, mortgage/rent deferrals and more.
  • Amidst the COVID pandemic, we were able to secure a commitment from both The Star and Crown to end indoor smoking across all casinos by 2023.
  • And we started building the union at the new Crown Sydney casino – there are only a couple hundred workers there at the moment, but already two out of every three are UWU members.
