– Been working at Smeaton Grange as a casual for 7 years. Have never been offered a permanent position
– we were expected to work long hours during the Covid period. The permanent team members were given a cash bonus and although us casuals did mist of the work during that period, we didn’t receive a cent to say thank you for sacrificing your time with your family. It was really disgusting actually.
– now that this industrial action is taking place we have been swept aside and not given a thought about how we are going to support our families during this 3 month lockout. In fact us as casuals have been on heavily reduced hours for a few months already.
