Fight back with RAFFWU

Domino’s workers were ripped off for years under rotten deals struck between Domino’s and the SDA.

Workers for this corporate pizza chain were being paid less than the minimum Award, losing out on Saturday and Sunday penalty rates, casual loading, evening penalty rates and many other basic conditions. The SDA endorsed these rotten agreements for more than a decade.

In 2017 we lodged an application on behalf of Domino’s delivery driver Casey Salt to terminate the enterprise agreement that saw thousands of Domino’s workers underpaid and denied their penalty rates.

A separate investigation by journalists Adele Ferguson and Mario Christodoulou in 2017 found that Domino’s franchises were routinely underpaying workers by doctoring payroll records. 

The Fair Work Commission agreed with our application to terminate the existing Domino’s EBA, and the old deal was terminated in 2018.

Domino’s Pizza tried to put in place a new agreement that would have cut worker rights again. The SDA tried to help them do that. RAFFWU fought back, and now Domino’s workers are covered by the Fast Food Industry Award.

That Award includes rights for part-time staff to have guaranteed hours, including set start and finish times that do not change without your agreement. If this is not your experience, please contact RAFFWU.

If you work beyond the rostered finish time you must be paid overtime rates.

You must be paid at least 41c per kilometre if delivering pizzas in your own motor vehicle.

Domino’s class action

With the support of RAFFWU, specialist litigation firm Phi Finney McDonald is currently running a class action on behalf of Domino’s workers for unpaid wages during the time when the old, rotten EBA was in place.

This action went to court in November 2022 — if you are eligible for the class action it is important to register, in the event of any future compensation order made by the court.

You may be able to claim unpaid wages from Domino’s if you:

  1. were employed in Australia as a Domino’s delivery driver or an in-store worker;
  2. worked at a franchise store; and
  3. were employed at any time between 24 June 2013 and 24 January 2018.
