    Yes, theoretically you should be given a full weekend off every month, however the fact you signed the original contract is their butt cover as you have "agreed" to that - this was my experience as somebody who worked every Sunday for more than 5 years

    Townie is right.

    You could be getting those days, but your contract has an "alternative arrangement"

    (I was right first :P )

    Basically it boils down to, is getting the sunday pay rates every week more important.

    Re: The Woolworths Thread

    Thanks guys for the replies! I have been given a new contract, as they want me to do a close every week.
    The box that says "by mutial agreement i agree to forego the 3 consecutive days off, which include saturday & sunday, once every four weeks..." has not been ticked. Does this mean I'm in my right to ask for a sunday off once a month? how does it work, one week a month you only work, say 30hrs instead of 38?

    The sunday rates really don't bother me, I was quite happy on my tue-sat roster.

    I really don't mean to sound like I'm making a big deal over nothing. It's just that 4 new contracts in about 2 months, kinda gets a bit annoying after a while. feel like a casual sometimes.

    I don't think the tick box is very important. What is important is the 4 week cycle detailed on the form. Like someone said, if you've put a 1 week cycle in the roster section and signed off on it then you are essentially signing away your sundays. if however you had a 4 week cycle where you worked sundays weeks 1 - 3 but on week 4 didn't then thats different.

    Yes, mine were altered slightly, but I'm not exactly sure why. CSM told me that it was a decision made by management because few people use SCO after 9pm, and would now be unmanned after 9. Seems like more cost cutting by the company. Not sure how much more of it I can handle. I took a month off to recharge, and work on one of my TAFE assignments. I go back next week, but looks like my store got that new phone system everyones been complaining about. So, not really looking forward to it!!

    Re: The Woolworths Thread

    Yep, so for a 7am-10pm store, the shifts will be:

    AM Open
    0800-1600 (as opposed to 0630-1500. Nobody in self serve before 8am)

    PM Close
    1600-2100 (as opposed to 1500-2230. Nobody in self serve after 9pm)

    Supervisor stays back until 11pm instead of 10.30pm to close self serve alone. Now this is stupid because they wanted the supervisor + sco person to close due to loss prevention issues and now they're cutting that self serve person, meaning the supervisor will be alone.. Silly.

    Re: The Woolworths Thread

    we've got paid meetings in our store soon to discuss the new EBA agreement, i think ill go to the meeting on a sunday

    really?! no one on self serve for 4 hours a day?! well then im going to refuse customers assistance and allow, no, encourage them to steal. thats just bullshiz. what the hell are they thinking?!
    cost cutting can only go so far. why should i care about my customers and my company when corporate doesnt even care?!
    frick it, just make a staff-less store already, its exactly what theyre going for by the sounds of it.

    (btw anyone else got problems with coca-cola company 600mL drinks on self serve? it never allows them in the bagging area for us...)
    I type on behalf of myself, I am not a representative of Woolworths.
    The AllYours forum should be open access for anyone to post and create topics, imagine all the great ideas and discussions we could have without the whole internet being able to see them (and you wouldn't have to spy on us)

    Re: The Woolworths Thread

    This cost cutting is ridiculous. I can't wait until Masters can actually support itself so that the supermarket profits can actually be spent on the supermarkets.

    Why? Every person who uses the machine can CLEARLY see that there is no weight restrictions. It was the companies choice to do it, I'll post it all I want

    Re: The Woolworths Thread

    I wouldn't say everyone. I still see a lot of people make sure they put everything down as the weight thing seems to vary from store to store.

    Probably because Coles (at least the ones in my area) have weight limits on the self serve machines.

    Re: The Woolworths Thread

    So happy. Got my hours back.

    And +1 to that big TV's thing. Remember back last year when we were selling those massive hundred dollar coolers that took up pretty much the entire width and length of the belt? Yeah, love'd it when the guy put that up on the checkout for me to scan. I'm just glad he was thinking straight when he did it.

    Re: The Woolworths Thread

    New Autostocker routine has arrived, been told the capping will be removed in all stores and detailing will be gone, will this just be a way to cut down on day staff in longlife? Been told the boards will be removed in 2 weeks. Any other stores have massive problems with rf guns, we have 6 for a store of 1.6M considering we are suppost to have 15!

    Yeah, massive cost cutting is starting, though nightfill is more affected. They're going to get the load numbers right so they more or less only have enough for what is sold. I've also heard that that head office has instructed 300 hours across the board to be cut from all stores.
