Safety win for Christelle
Together with her Union, SDA member Christelle recently secured improved safety in her workplace.
Christelle works for a liquor store. Management recently changed the roster so that only one staff member was rostered on to close the store of an evening.
The store is located in a reputedly rough area, and the staff were justifiably anxious about working alone, and closing the store on their own, at night.
Concerned for her and her co-workers’ safety, Christelle met with the Store Manager. With support and advice from her Union, Christelle was able to successfully rectify the situation.
As a result, two staff are now rostered on to close the store each shift, allowing Christine and her co-workers to feel safer in their workplace.
Well done Christelle for fighting for her team’s rights!
