The Shop, Distributive & Allied Employees’ ­Association will push for casual workers’ loadings to be increased from 10 per cent to 50 per cent on Saturdays. The SDA is also seeking a loading of 25 per cent for staff who work after 6pm on weeknights, in addition to the 25 per cent casual loading at present. The Australian Retailers Association’s executive director Russell Zimmerman argues that many casual workers in the retail sector can only work after 6pm, and they may not be given extra shifts if employment costs increase. The full bench of the Fair Work Commission will hear the wage claim on 16 August.
