Big W stores to close over three-year period

Published on: Apr 01 2019

The news that Woolworths will be closing a number of Big W stores over a three year period is disappointing for employees, their families and the communities they serve. Although no specific sites have been identified at this stage the work of supporting SDA members has already begun.

The SDA will be working to ensure that Big W employees receive their rights and entitlements and to ensure employees are fully supported throughout this process.

The union will be working closely with the company and members to identify suitable redeployment opportunities for Big W staff wherever possible.

The 84% of Big W stores which will remain open and other Woolworths brand stores all provide opportunities for the SDA and Big W to secure ongoing employment wherever possible.

Our Big W members who have questions or concerns are encouraged to contact us on 1300 732 4357.
