New Freezer Jackets at Woolworths

October 12, 2018 News Woolies


Fresh new freezer jackets to hit Woolworths Supermarkets from October 2018!

Woolworths have agreed to replace the existing freezer jackets with brand new ones following representation from the SDA and our members in Queensland who reported concerns about the existing jackets that had become dirty and unhygienic.

The policy change would not have been possible without the reports filed by our Queensland members. It was the evidence of these reports that forced the issue to be investigated and addressed in all stores – (the importance of reporting should not be underestimated.)

Woolworths Supermarkets have recently agreed to:

  • Remove the existing freezer jackets from all stores
  • Replace old freezer jackets with brand new jackets (4 per store)
  • Launder freezer jackets regularly
  • Hold spare stock of freezer jackets to swap when laundering cycle occurs so employees always have a replacement clean jacket

This is a fantastic win for our Woolworths Supermarket members.
