Joy, Woolworths worker, says:

“I support the new Agreement.

I work Monday to Friday in the day. Protecting my higher day time rates of pay is important. I’m still more than $50 a week better off compared to the Award. The new laundry allowance is also worth another $300 a year.

So many things we have fought for over the years are still in the new Agreement. We still have our extra days sick leave, better compassionate leave, all our extra paid leave entitlements with some improved and new leave too.

There’s improved roster rights and a better way to enforce our rights if we need too.

I’m happy night workers are getting penalty rates. Working at those times they deserve it!

That’s why I’m voting Yes.”

Wayne, Woolworths worker, says:

“I support the new Agreement.

I’m a baker. The higher early morning penalty rates and weekend rates make a big difference to my pay. I normally work 6am to 2pm and every second weekend.

In my short week I will get over $35 more per week and in my long week weeks I’ll get $100 more.

Bakers working overnight will get even more.

I know as a baker I won’t get the new laundry allowance, but Woolies washes all my uniform for me anyway.

You can use the SDA Pay Calculator to see how much more you will get [http://bit.ly/2E4Qglx]

That’s why I’m voting Yes.”

Blake and Josh Woolworths workers:

“We support the new Agreement.

We work nightfill. We support the Agreement for the additional penalty rates after 6pm of 25%. If we work after 11pm it’s even more.

Part time hours can’t be reduced anymore, but if we regularly do extra hours then we can still have our contract hours increased.

Blake fills in as a duty manager sometimes. The improvements to higher duties mean if you do the job for more than 2 hours you get paid the whole shift at the higher rate, if it’s less than 2 hours you get the higher rate whilst you’re doing that job.

This Agreement is good for nightfillers.

That’s why we’re voting Yes.”
