« We are very pleased that this new agreement has been supported by Woolworths workers across Australia with 93% in favour, » said Dwywer. The agreement will be submitted to the Fair Work Commission for finalization. Yesterday, Woolworths informed the SDA that they had entered into binding agreements on December 24, 2016 to facilitate the sale to BP of their 527 Woolworth-specific fuel convenience sites and 16 promised development sites. The agreement means that all wages and working conditions for Woolworth employees are guaranteed for the next four years. All workers receive wage increases, improved turnover charts and access to paid leave for domestic violence. Dwyer is satisfied that the new agreement includes a wide range of conditions and premium rights mentioned above. « We are very pleased that the proposed agreement provides a one-time payment of $1,100 in cash and gift cards (depending on hours worked and length of service) for Woolworths employees. The agreement also provides for improvements to the turnover tables of part-time workers and facilitates the transition of casual workers to part-time employment. The agreement also fulfils « hard-beaten SDA conditions, » such as voluntary work on public holidays and a 15-minute tea break. Woolworth employees voted overwhelmingly in favour of a new enterprise agreement that restores weekend sentences and protects home pay. Nearly 68,000 Woolworth employees across Australia took part in the vote, resulting in a 93% « yes » vote in support of the new agreement.
During this period, both organizations will work « business as usual. » Although the details are not yet final, BP has committed to offer job offers to all members of our team at the site level, if the company obtains permission to pursue BP`s strategic partnership.
