A PAY RISE IS ESSENTIAL FOR SUPERMARKET WORKERS
Supermarket workers are essential – the pandemic has proven this.
You have kept the shelves stocked, the registers open and allowed for Australians to put food on the table.
You have worked tirelessly on the frontlines of the response, despite risks to their health and safety and unacceptable abuse from customers.
Yet the Fair Work Commission has delayed a retail pay rise until February 2021.
This is not good enough. It is essential for supermarkets to give essential workers a pay rise now.
Employers can give a pay rise earlier than February 2021. The SDA has been in discussions with employers calling on them to give a pay rise now.Join our campaign and show your support here.
We need as many supermarket workers as possible to send their employer a clear a message: we deserve a pay rise now.
UPDATE: HUGE NEWS – PAY RISE FOR WOOLWORTHS & BIG W WORKERS
A 1 July pay rise has now been agreed for Woolworths Supermarkets and Big W members.
The Fair Work Commission’s 1.75% pay rise will be back paid to 1 July 2020.
Woolworths has now done the right thing by its team in bringing forward these pay increases to 1 July. This now means the SDA can withdraw its Federal Court proceedings.
Thank you to the thousands of SDA members who supported our pay rise campaign.
Our campaign continues, and we now call on other large retailers to follow Woolworths’ lead on this issue and give essential workers a pay rise immediately.
