Pay Rate over Easter Holidays

A couple of guys and I have worked over Easter installing air-conditioning ductwork in a factory while they have been shut down. We worked Good Friday, Saturday and Monday. What can we expect from our employer regarding pay. One person has said Tripple time for public holidays and day off in leiu, while another said just triple time for public holidays and standard penalties for Saturday. Can anyone shed some light on it?

    Why didn't you ask for the rates before you agreed to work these days?
