Freezer allowance backpay for Sherin

Published on: Dec 06 2017

SDA member Sherin, an employee of a national supermarket chain, covered a relief role in the freezer for a colleague and months later, wondered if she had been entitled to a freezer allowance.

She contacted SDA to see if she was eligible to receive a freezer allowance under her agreement, as the majority of her hours during the 6-week relief had been spent in the freezer.

With the help of her store delegate, Sherin received $64 in backpay for freezer allowance.

You may be entitled to a cold allowance depending on your Enterprise Agreement. For more information about working in a cold environment or cold allowances contact the Newcastle SDA office on 4961 4694.
