General Retail Agreement

Company agreements are based on the minimum conditions of the Modern Awards and/or vary. Modern awards are a safety net of minimum conditions for an entire industry or job, for example the General Retail Industry Award 2010 applies to retail. If a job has a company agreement, the modern price does not apply. Company agreements and bonuses apply in conjunction with National Employment Standards („NES“). The NES applies to all employees (with the exception of staff of the Land Government and municipal councils) and they cannot be superseded by an arbitration award or agreement. (d) The minimum rate applicable to the worker immediately before the conclusion of the contract of continuing training shall apply to the worker throughout the training. The SDA is highly experienced in negotiating corporate agreements and has been doing so for over 20 years with major retailers, fast food operators, storage and distribution chains and manufacturers. Among the agreements negotiated by the SDA currently in operation, you can choose this type of work if, after consultation between an employer and an employee, the break between the shifts was between 10 and 12 hours (instead of the usual minimum of 12 hours). See section 31.2 of the General Retail Industry Award. Many workers in retail, fast food, and warehousing and distribution are covered by company agreements negotiated by the SDA. (c) Clause 17.4 (d) applies to a worker who has been employed full-time by an employer for at least 6 months prior to the conclusion of a training contract as an adult apprentice or for at least twelve months as a part-time or long-term worker. (b) apprentices or trainees who are employed by a group training employer and who are admitted by an employer who is subject to that price to work in the retail trade in general (with a classification in accordance with Annex A – classification definitions) in a place where the workers referred to in clause 4.1(b) also perform work and the group training employers of such apprentices or trainees. Company agreements are agreements concluded at company level which lay down the minimum working conditions applicable to a group of workers and to an employer.

B.4.2 The junior apprenticeship rate for apprentices in the retail trade is calculated in accordance with point 17.3 – apprenticeship rate. (i) With the agreement of the majority of the workers concerned, an employer may, in the following circumstances, replace a day of service or half a day off for a worker on another day or half a day: 29.4 With the agreement of the employer, a casual worker may be absent from work for more than 48 hours for a purpose referred to in clause 29.2. .
