Fitness Award changes to benefit swimming instructors

Fitness Award changes to benefit swimming instructors
July 11, 2018

In a move that clarifies the Fitness Award for swimming instructors, the Swim Instructors Association (SIA) has announced that the Fair Work Commission has accepted proposed changes to the Fitness Award.

In a statement, the SIA explained “this means that the Award is now clear - if your employer asks you to teach a lesson on your own, you must be paid as a teacher (Level 2+) regardless of how many hours you have completed at Level 1.

“If this is not happening at your centre then contact the SIA today.”

The Swim Instructors Association (SIA) is a division of the Australian Workers Union.
