Domino’s team members vote for new Enterprise Agreement
Domino’s Pizza Enterprises Ltd (Domino’s) Australian employees have voted in favour of a new Enterprise Agreement.
The vote in favour of the Agreement is the next important step in Domino’s becoming one of the first Australian quick service restaurants to offer employees a fully modernised agreement, offering terms better than the Modern Award.
89% of employees who voted were in favour of the new agreement.
Domino’s Australia/New Zealand CEO Nick Knight said the vote was an important step in the process, with the Agreement now to go before the Fair Work Commission for consideration.
“The new agreement was the culmination of more than a year and a half of negotiations, provides for wages and entitlements (including weekend penalty rates) which are among the highest in our industry, was broadly supported by the SDA Union, and now has been endorsed by our team members,” Mr Knight said.
“With our new agreement in place, we believe we will be an employer of choice for tens of thousands of Australians by providing beneficial working conditions for all team members.
“Domino’s is a rewarding place to work– whether people are looking for their first job, or are hoping to build a career (inside or outside of Domino's), Domino’s can help pave the way. We have so many opportunities available, everything from making and delivering pizzas, to managing stores, to corporate roles, entrepreneur and Leadership roles.”
In the interim, Domino’s team members are being paid according to the Fast Food award.
The Company reiterates that while the new Agreement includes higher wages, it has been putting strategies in place to ensure franchises remain profitable, sustainable, and continue to prosper.
