This is a really stressful time for so many young workers. COVID-19 is impacting everyone’s workplace and ability to earn a wage massively. We spoke on Triple J Hack, have produced videos and compiled these resources to answer commonly asked questions.
In most circumstances you've got to speak to your employer.
It’s a lot easier to do that if you and workmates speak to your employer together and with the backing of a union.
It’s never been a more important time to be a union member. COVID-19 is a new situation and our industrial and employment laws don’t deal with it, but having the support of a union sets you and your workmates up to navigate complex issues like this.
Have more questions?
The situation is ever-changing and you don’t need to navigate it alone. If you have more questions, call your union or you can call us at the Young Workers Centre on 1800 714 754.
