On an unrelated note, I was pleased to read recently that there is at least one union, the SDA in SA, that seems willing to compromise on "entitlements" as part of a sensible conversation with industry on the new award.

Penalty rates are being drastically cut or removed entirely in exchange for a marginally increased base hourly rate, among other alternative entitlements such as the right to have every second weekend off work.

I'm sure it hasn't gone down well for some people but I much prefer seeing this kind of cooperation between employers and unions, which will ultimately result in better business for all.
