Bunnings Enterprise Agreement 2013
In addition, the proposed agreement makes such a postponement voluntary, although it continues to authorize one-hour training in accordance with the 2013 agreement. The proposed agreement includes the same working time as the 2013 agreement: this is better than the 2013 agreement, which gives only two consecutive days off per 14 days to team members. The rosters are issued electronically for a period of 4 weeks at least 2 weeks in advance. If you work 3 out of 4 Sundays on a 4-week cycle, you must benefit from a full weekend (clause 3.6 (c) (i)). However, you can agree to work 4 Sundays on a 4-week cycle. You can revoke this contract with a period of 4 weeks (point 3.6). Previous Bunnings agreements have used a so-called „loaded rate“ system, in which higher base rates offset some lower penalties. In any event, previous agreements have been approved by the Fair Labour Commission. Although other retailers have deviated from this model (with lower base rates and higher penalties), Bunnings continued to support a loaded pricing model. Well aware of Bunnings` high base rates, the SDA decided to cooperate with the company to maintain these rates, while ensuring that the proposed agreement would pass the Better Off Overall Test („BOOT“). The new agreement must ensure that there is no way that a team member will receive less salary than you would receive as part of the bonus. In the vast majority of cases at Bunnings, this is not a problem, since the lowest base rate of Bunnings, currently paid under the 2013 agreement, is about $110 per week higher than the price.
You must have 2 consecutive days off each week of pay or 3 consecutive days off within the 14 days provided (clause 3.6 (c) (ii)). However, you can accept a rollout table in which you do not receive 2 consecutive days per pay week or 3 consecutive days off from each rollover table. You can revoke this contract with a period of 4 weeks (point 3.6). Below is a summary of the proposed agreement and amendments to the Bunnings Warehouse / Small Format Stores Agreement 2013 („the 2013 agreement“) and/or provisions that differ from the General Retail Industry Award. The benefit compensation system remains unchanged from the system in force in the 2013 agreement.
