Dominos workers to vote on new enterprise agreement
The SDA has offered broad support to a new enterprise bargaining agreement that includes significantly higher guaranteed part time hours, a full suite of penalty rates and other improved conditions for Dominos workers.
After lengthy negotiations, which included two applications by the SDA to terminate previous agreements in 2016 and 2017, the new agreement will be made available to Dominos workers from 2 January with voting to commence one week later. Over 25 terminated Dominos agreements will cease to operate from 24 January.
SDA National Secretary Gerard Dwyer said the new agreement contained several important and enhanced conditions.
“The new agreement for Dominos employees delivers wage rates above the award on every hour for every worker, a full penalty rates structure and improved conditions.”
“Importantly for part time workers, the agreement will deliver a minimum of up to 15 guaranteed hours per week, compared with just 3 hours per month as contained in the award.”
“Part time workers will now be offered a minimum of 3 hours work every day they are available, for up to five days per week.”
“This will provide Dominos part time workers with a guaranteed weekly income they can rely on.”
“In a workplace environment increasingly characterised by casual and insecure work, this is an important win for part time workers.”
“Additionally, this agreement also includes added enhanced conditions, including voluntary work on public holidays and other improved leave benefits.”
“We understand that public holidays can be very important family time. Dominos workers can now choose whether they wish to work during a public holiday, which attracts a higher penalty rate or whether to take that day off to spend with family and friends.”
Dominos members across the country will now have the opportunity to review the agreement for one week from Tuesday 2 January, with voting to commence one week later.
Dominos members will be contacted directly by the SDA when the new agreement is available for review.
