Department store delegate, Janelle, helped an SDA member get their entitlement to Anzac Day off recently. The member resigned from the army reserves last year as a result of work pressures in a different store. The member had asked to not work on Anzac day at all this year, but was told they had to work from 1pm. Luckily the member went to Janelle, who advised the member that all work is voluntary on Anzac Day. The member went back to their manager and informed them of their rights and has now got the day off. Great job Janelle.
Remember. In observance of ANZAC Day, store trading in NSW is restricted before 1pm this Wednesday.
