AWU Safety Update

Looking out for Retail Workers

20 March 2020


We know this has been an unbelievably stressful time for retail workers across Queensland.

Between panicked customers and demanding shifts, retail workers have gone above and
beyond to make sure families can still put food on the table.

While you’ve been going through this, we’ve been working hard to make sure you’re kept safe and treated fairly at work.

We know that stressed and angry customers can be tough to deal with – and we’re doing everything we can to make it clear that abusing retail staff is completely unacceptable.

We’ve also had wins putting in place vital safety protections and extra safety equipment for many retail workers.

Importantly, we’ve also been calling on employers to do the right thing and commit to paying their staff, and many major retailers, including Woolworths, Kmart, and Target, have listened and will pay their casual workers if they are affected.

With COVID-19 cases continuing to develop, we believe it’s time for Coles and Wesfarmers to join them in ensuring their workers aren’t left financially disadvantaged.

There has never been a more important time to be a member of the AWU.

AWU Officials are working around the clock to make sure you’re kept safe and treated fairly at work during this time.

If you need any assistance at work, make sure you speak to your AWU Organiser or Delegate
straight away.
