SDA recovers shift for members
Recently one of our delegates contacted us about a roster change made by their store manager which would affect two members.
The members had volunteered to work on an upcoming public holiday, so the store manager changed the roster. The manager rostered the two employees to work on the public holiday instead of - rather than in addition to - their usual rostered shift later in the week.
This meant the workers - employees of national chemist chain - would lose a shift.
SDA intervened, and the manager put the two members back on their rostered shift, in addition to the public holiday.
By having the shift reinstated the SDA secured the two employees an average of $80 each in wages and superannuation which they would have otherwise have missed out on.
If you have any questions about rosters and roster changes, please call the office on 4961 4694.
