Woolworths Agreement Sda

The company`s 2012 enterprise agreement was eventually approved, resulting in tens of thousands of workers being underpaid by $1 billion, after the Retail and Fast Food Workers Union (RAFFWU) showed that Woolworths “knowingly and deliberately” misled the Fair Labour Commission. We continue to fight for the new agreement: Stockland Green Hills workers will once again have access to free and safe parking spaces in the centre, with the SDA, the Retail, Fast food and Storage Workers Union and Stockland reaching an agreement in principle. The SDA, the union that represents retail, fast food and shopping workers, won a victory for the workers of H-M after successfully opposing an unfair enterprise agreement within the Fair Labour Commission (FWC). “Our retail agreements are designed to reflect conditions in the general retail price, including all annual wage increases, penalties and certificates,” she said. The agreements should not have been approved by the Fair Work Commission, which imposes a labour agreement to pass the “best overall test.” This test requires that each employee receive more than the bonus.

However, the Shop Distributive and Allied Employees` Association (SDA) said the company was violating its contractual obligations and this week filed an urgent request for additional payment and penalties from the Federal Court of Justice. SDA National Secretary Gerard Dwyer said the new agreement, which will come into effect from Monday, January 14, protects home payments, improves penalties, ensures the hard-won conditions of the SDA and ensures that all Woolworths employees receive pay increases. Hayley Baxendale, general manager of industrial relations at Woolworths Group, said this year`s minimum wage decision was unprecedented and “created some uncertainty about our retail agreements.”
