Woolworths Pay Rise


As a result of the SDA’s campaign for an immediate pay rise for essential supermarket workers, Woolworths members will now receive a 1.75% pay rise. Without the SDA campaign, wage increases would not have applied before 1 February 2021.


Pay rise

New wage rates shall come into effect from the week commencing 2 November 2020.

For those members who are paid the Temporary Transition Rate (TTR) or Casual Temporary Transition Rate (CTTR) (saved rates) the rate for work in ordinary hours will increase by half of 1.75%.



Woolworths has also agreed to back pay this increase to 1 July 2020. As a result, you will receive back-pay separate to your normal pay (and a separate payslip).

These back payments will be processed between 29 October and 5 November, with payments completed by 6 November 2020.


Remember to check your pay slip to ensure you are receiving the correct rate of pay.


Thank you to the thousands of active SDA members who supported our pay rise campaign to help ensure essential workers received a pay rise this year!
