Drama at Aussie Junk today?

By Felix the Cat - 23 July 2008 35

Around lunchtime today (Wed) I noticed two Police vehicles exiting Aussie Junk (the rubbish recycling equivalent to Revolve located at Mitchell) and several people (presumably Aussie Junk workers) congregating on the footpath outside.

Next a TV film crew arrived (ABC I think, their vehicle had “Z” plates) and appeared to interview these people. Anyone know what was going on?

[ED – according to WIN News a big employee entitlements fight]

What’s Your opinion?

I remember when i worked out at the tips and i always thought that you guys were dodgy. Overcharging and reselling on ebay and not properly declaring your earnings. It was all in a days work to notice what you guys were up to.

OF COURSE. THEY THOUGHT THEY MIGHT BE ENTITLED TO THEIR PAY WHICH THEY DID NOT RECEIVE. BUT NOW THAT IT’S DOCUMENTED IN CAPS, WE ALL UNDERSTAND THAT THEY DID NOT DESERVE THEIR PAY BECAUSE THE DARED TO EXERCISE THEIR RIGHTS. HOW DARE THEY!

Aunty has a report here.
Depot workers sacked amid pay dispute!!!
Three workers have been sacked from a Canberra recycling depot in the middle of an investigation by the Workplace Ombudsman into claims they have been underpaid.
Police were called to the Aussie Junk business at Mitchell when the men refused to leave the premises after they were handed termination notices.
Sacked worker Justin Winters says he and other members of his family who work at the depot have not received overtime and superannuation entitlements.

There I was thinking someone had put their recycling in the wrong bin!
