The FWC has ordered Visy to reinstate two union delates wrongly accused of organising an overtime ban, but deemed they should only be back-paid for six of the 18 months since their sacking in part because they were "players in the drama" who could have held some sway.
The FWC has approved a new Big W deal but is yet to give reasons for rejecting RAFFWU's objections about job security representations and the retailer's announcement immediately after workers voted it up that it would close stores and change rosters.
A major employer has expressed concerns about the Morrison Government's looming clampdown on workers' entitlement funds, praising its own experience of the "quality service" offered to injured employees.
