Woolworths Award Agreement
More information on bonus-free and no-contract wages and conditions The SDA has been negotiating a new supermarket agreement with Woolworths since February and we continue to work hard to conclude a new agreement which: The Shop Distributive and Allied Employees` Association (SDA) has however claimed that the company has breached its contractual obligations and this week filed an urgent request for additional payment and penalties from the Federal Court of Justice. In the case of Woolworths, approximately 5,700 employees would have worked enough overtime, which would have resulted in them, on the whole, being better off if they had received bonuses. Woolworths simply did not track overtime by employees (covered) or regularly checked work patterns to verify that the all-up rate was appropriate and relied on the requirement that employees work “appropriate overtime” and treated their “all-up rate” as an oversight rate and a forgetfulness rate, at least with respect to the wage settlement system. The supermarket agreement stipulates that wage increases for the first wage package will be effective on July 1 or after July 1 and that the increase should be “in the percentage increase rate that will come into effect in the Fair Work Commission`s annual wage decision, which will take effect in July.” “The variations to which we aspire by the FWC will clarify the intention of the parties during the negotiations and the subsequent development of these agreements.

There are no current members of the team who work in a pastry production team. Current team members can only become a bakery production worker by mutual agreement. A Woolworth spokesperson did not respond to questions directly on the rolling boards, but said they were indicative.
He said the union`s claims to its 2012 agreement were “baseless and we reject them.” The spokesperson said that the 2012 agreement was supported by more than 95 per cent of the workers who voted for it and that it was “subsequently approved by the Fair Work Commission in accordance with the requirements of the Fair Work Act.”
