The take-home pay of current Woolworths employees will not be affected by a new enterprise bargaining agreement that has been struck with the Shop, Distributive & Allied Employees’ Association. Employees will receive the full penalty rates and casual loading rates of the retail industry award, although "loaded" base rates will be reduced. The new EBA also includes an employee bonus of up to $1,100 dollars. Retail & Fast Food Workers Union secretary Josh Cullinan claims that Woolworths employees are collectively owed about $1bn under the previous EBA.
