A spokesman for Big W said it was pleased that the FWC had approved the deal and said it had “improved conditions for our team while supporting the continuation of our business.” The proposed agreement will not have shared positions that until now allowed two teams of less than ten hours of break between the teams to work in one day. Now there must be a 12-hour break (or 10 hours by appointment) between the end of one shift and the start of the next shift. This means that, in some stores, the practice of using shared teams is no longer allowed. The Big W agreement allows workers to designate any fund of their choice. If no appointment takes place, the company forwards the superpayments in REST. The agreement enters into force seven days after approval and has a nominal expiry date of May 5, 2022.
