The agreement enters into force seven days after approval and has a nominal expiry date of May 5, 2022. The SDA has worked hard to ensure that your home taking salary is protected and ensures salary increases. Team members received salary increases in December 2018 and will receive a further increase in May 2019. Wages will increase based on the wage increase provided by the SDA with CUTA to the Fair Work Commission at the Annual Wage Review (AWR) in July of each year. The proposed “Big W” deal is now subject to approval by the Fair Work Commission (FWC). The new agreement will start on 6 May 2019 or 7 days after approval by the Fair Work Commission, depending on the subsequent value. The new agreement will apply from next Tuesday, 24 September 2019. *The new agreement ensures that the base wage rates for Tier 1 employees will at all times be at least 4 cents higher than the retail price. If the annual salary revision is more than 3.31% in July 2019, it will come into effect. * Based on the approval of the new agreement after July 1, 2019.
The proposed agreement will not have shared positions that until now allowed two teams of less than ten hours of break between the teams to work in one day. Now there must be a 12-hour break (or 10 hours by appointment) between the end of one shift and the start of the next shift. This means that, in some stores, the practice of using shared teams is no longer allowed. The first salary increase and the increase in the resulting charge to 25% will apply from 6 May 2019, whether or not the agreement has been approved by the FWC so far. Workers approved the new company contract (ABE) in a vote that took place on March 18 ended – two weeks before Big W owner Woolworths said it would close 30 of its stores in its network of 180 across the country. . . .
