On 1 November 2017, the Fair Work Commission agreed to terminate the dodgy old SDA & Domino's agreements which have underpaid tens of thousands of workers for many years.
From 24 January 2018, all the Minimum Award conditions will be restored.
Too often dodgy employers try and avoid these obligations - including by changing arrangements before 24 January 2018. Don't wait until a problem arises. Join RAFFWU today.
We know that every single Domino's driver covered by the old 2005 SDA-Domino's agreement was paid less than the minimum award rates of pay. This is because of a loophole in the Fair Work Act. We also know that most if not all in store staff are also losing out.
This costs Domino's drivers more than $30 million per year. Under the Award, casual delivery drivers would earn 25% loading between 6am and 10pm on weekdays, 35% between 10pm and 12am on weekdays, 40% between 12am and 6am on weekdays, 50% on Saturdays and 70% on Sundays. At all times, Award rates are higher than the current paid rates. See the chart below where the red line is the Award rate, the blue line is the current paid rate.
Many drivers, working an average 10 hour week, are losing more than $2 000 a year in wages and much more when we include travel allowance. Under the Award, workers receive 41 cents per kilometre for every kilometre when driving your own vehicle to deliver pizzas. It is clear that a full time casual driver might lose over $15 000 per year in casual loading, penalty rates, transport allowance and other wage rights.
This had to stop. Our members fought back. On 18 August 2017, our member Casey Salt applied to terminate the SDA-Domino's Pizza Agreement 2005.

Now the Fair Work Commission has agreed and all the Domino's Pizza agreements will be terminated on 24 January 2018.
Domino's Pizza want to put in place a new agreement which could cut new rights. Don't let it happen. Any new agreement must guarantee and improve Award conditions. Only RAFFWU can help you make that happen.
