            4.1.2     To improve warehouse team members’ productivity and customer services
                      arrangements in the Warehouse operations by providing for greater organisational
                      efficiency through increased flexibility and utilisation of warehouse team member skills
                      and significantly more flexible arrangements with respect to warehouse team members
                      working time.

            4.1.3     To provide more satisfying, secure and better paid employment for individual warehouse
                      team members in line with operational objectives.

            4.1.4     To provide a sound basis for expanded capital investment and employment opportunities
                      within the Warehouse operations.

            4.1.5     To ensure equitable terms and conditions of employment are applied to all team

                      enterprise and its warehouse team members.

            4.2.3     There is a continuous effort by Bunnings and its warehouse team members to improve
                      work practices, work organisation and review any other issues which will enhance the

            4.2.4     Issues or grievances which could impede the provision of service or the operation of the
                      enterprise are resolved through negotiation and the dispute resolution procedures.

            4.2.5     Working relationships between management and warehouse team members are
                      developed in a way to promote effective and open communication, mutual trust and co-
                      operation as much as possible.

            4.2.6     All team members working in the enterprise maintain acceptable standards of work,

            4.2.7     The principles of fairness and justice and equal opportunity in employment are promoted

                                                                                                       3

  5.6       “Agreement”: where the EBA contains a facilitative provision or otherwise allows for a team
            member and their manager to reach agreement over an issue (eg changing a roster with less
            than 7 days’ notice) and one or both wish to change the current position, then they shall confer
            and attempt to arrive at an outcome which is acceptable to both. In conferring both the team
            member and their manager are entitled to put forward arguments, and seek additional
            information from any source in favour of their preferred position and have these considered by
            the other party. In the absence of an outcome that is acceptable to both parties, then the
            position specified in the EBA as the default position shall apply.

            In all such cases, prior to a decision being made, the relevant manager shall explain to the team
            member:

            1. The default position in the EBA
            2. The effect of the proposed change on the team member

           This explanation should be sufficient to allow the team member to make an informed decision
           regarding the proposed change.



6. CLOSED AGREEMENT

  This agreement is a closed Agreement and shall not be varied during its term of operation except as
  provided in the Workplace Relations Act 1996. No claims shall be made by either party to this
  Agreement during the life of the Agreement.



7. TERM

  This Agreement shall operate from the date of lodgement with the Office of the Employment Advocate
  for a period of three years.

  After the nominal expiry date of this agreement, this agreement shall continue to apply until the
  termination of the Agreement as provided for by this Agreement, or the parties replace this Agreement
  with another. Either Bunnings or the SDA may initiate the termination of this Agreement by one
  month's notice to the other. The Agreement will terminate at the expiration of the period of notice.


8. RELATIONSHIP TO OTHER AWARDS AND AGREEMENTS

  This Agreement shall replace all provisions of any State and Federal Awards and Agreements which
  would otherwise apply to the warehouse team members covered by this Agreement.

  For the avoidance of doubt, and without limiting the operation of this clause, this Agreement is
  intended to expressly exclude all protected award conditions that may otherwise have effect in
  relation to a team member’s employment with Bunnings. The term ‘protected award conditions’ has the
  same meaning in this agreement as it has in the Workplace Relations Act 1996.

                                                                                                             4
9. CONTRACT OF SERVICE

      9.1       The initial employment of a warehouse team member shall consist of a 3 month probationary
                period. During this period the warehouse team member's contract of employment may be
                terminated on 24 hours’ notice by either party. For the avoidance of doubt, nothing in this
                clause shall be construed to constitute a shorter qualifying period within the meaning of that
                expression in the Workplace Relations Act 1996.

      9.2       In order to terminate the employment of a warehouse team member (other than a probationary
                team member), for a reason other than a reason which would justify instant dismissal, Bunnings
                shall give notice (or payment, including part payment, in lieu thereof) to the warehouse team
                member concerned as follows:

               1 year but less than 3 years                                         2 weeks
               3 years but less than 5 years                                        3 weeks
               5 years and over                                                     4 weeks

               Warehouse team members over 45 years of age with 2 years’ continuous service shall receive
               an additional week’s notice.

      9.3       Payment in lieu of notice shall be calculated on the basis of the warehouse team member's
                ordinary rate of pay.

      9.4       A warehouse team member who has been given notice of termination of employment shall be
                entitled to take one day off on full pay in order to seek other employment during the notice
                period. The timing of this day off shall be mutually agreed with the store manager in question.

      9.5       A warehouse team member giving notice of termination to Bunnings shall give two (2) weeks’
                notice. If such notice is not provided, any shortfall may be recovered by Bunnings from the
                warehouse team member's termination pay.

      9.6       On termination, a warehouse team member who has worked more hours than those for which
                he/she has been paid pursuant to this Agreement shall be paid for all such hours at the ordinary
                time rate of pay and such payment shall be included with the warehouse team member’s
                termination pay.

      9.7       A warehouse team member who has worked fewer hours than those for which he/she has been
                paid pursuant to this Agreement shall have an amount equal to the ordinary time rate of pay for
                such hours deducted from the warehouse team member’s termination pay, or where insufficient
                leave is available the period of notice shall be extended accordingly.

                    that they are to work for the period shall be reduced by the number of hours taken as
                    unpaid leave.


10.2      Ordinary hours of work may be rostered on any day at any time:

          The times during which a team member may expect to be regularly rostered to work ordinary

                    already engaged in stock filling duties outside the spread of hours will not be required to
                    work outside the hours of 5:00am and 11:00pm Monday to Sunday, but may do so by
                    agreement.

10.3   Warehouse team members shall be rostered to work ordinary hours such that:

       10.3.1 the maximum number of rostered ordinary hours on any one day shall be 10.5.

       10.3.2 the minimum number of rostered ordinary hours per day shall be 6 for full time
              warehouse team members, and 3 hours for all other warehouse team members.
              However, by agreement with the team member concerned the minimum number of
              rostered ordinary hours for a full time warehouse team member may be less than 6 but
              not less than 4 hours per day.

       10.3.3 a maximum of 46 hours in any one week except for part time team members whose
              agreed annual hours are less than 1040 hours per 52 weeks, in which case the
              maximum shall be 30 hours, or 46 hours by agreement.

       10.3.4 a maximum of 6 consecutive rostered days.

       10.3.5 a team member shall receive 2 consecutive days off in each fortnightly pay period unless
              otherwise agreed between Bunnings and the warehouse team member affected.

       10.3.6 the hours of work on any day, exclusive of meal breaks, shall be continuous.

       10.3.7 a team member may be rostered for a minimum of 1 hour for the purpose of attending
              store training. In these instances clause 10.3.2 shall not apply and these sessions shall
              not constitute an additional start for team members for the purposes of clause 10.3.4.
              but such hours shall come off the team members hours to be worked for the year and
              clause 10.3.5 shall still be applicable. If the store training is scheduled the day after a
              team member has worked 6 consecutive days, attendance will be voluntary. When
              rostering in accordance with this clause, 10.4.3 shall apply, with the company also
              having regard to excessive travel.


10.4   10.4.1 Rosters for ordinary hours of work shall be set for a two week period at least fourteen
              days in advance but may be varied with seven days’ notice or at any time by mutual
              agreement between Bunnings and the warehouse team member affected.

       10.4.2 As far as possible, rosters will be set by mutual agreement between Bunnings and the
              warehouse team members.

       10.4.3 In setting rosters Bunnings will have regard for the family responsibilities and other
              significant commitments of warehouse team members and access to safe transport
              home by warehouse team members as well as the operational requirements of the
              business and the need to be fair in its treatment of warehouse team members as a
              whole.

10.5      Team member preferences as to which Public Holidays they would prefer to work shall be
          sought by Bunnings no less than 6 weeks prior to the Public Holiday falling.

  10.6      Rosters for work on days which are Public Holidays shall be provided 4 weeks in advance and
            shall not be unnecessarily varied. However, in cases where variation is necessary ordinary
            rostering provisions shall apply. In the case of disagreement, the parties shall refer to the
            Dispute Resolution Procedures.

  10.7      Bunnings may engage stocktake counters for the specific purpose of stocktake activities during
            stocktake. Team members will be given a minimum of 8 weeks’ notice that a stocktake is taking
            place in order for them to request shifts through stocktake.


11. BANK OF HOURS

  11.1      The annualised hours system used in this Agreement is recorded through a ‘Bank of Hours’.

  11.2      Where a team member has been paid for more hours than they have worked they ‘owe’ hours
            e.g. A full-time team member works less than 76 hours in a fortnight.

            Where a team member has worked for more hours than they have been paid they are ‘owed’
            hours.
            e.g. A full-time team member works more than 76 hours in a fortnight.

  11.3      Whenever a team member either owes or is owed 46 banked hours then the team member and
            their manager must discuss the action to be taken to manage the number of hours ‘owing’ or
            ‘owed’. Nothing prevents hours continuing to be banked as either ‘owing to’ or ‘owed by’ the
            team members.

  11.4      Bunnings and the Union and team members are committed to the principle that time off should
            be taken in a manner that provides a meaningful benefit to the team member.

  11.5      Where a team member is owed 46 banked hours the team member may request to reduce the
            hours owed by taking a full day/s off or by working reduced hours.

            The team member's request is to be granted by the team member's manager unless there are
            reasons related to the operational requirements of the business that prevent this. In such cases,
            the manager must explain the reasons to the team member and discuss with the team member
            the team member's alternative choice.

            Reasons related to the operational requirements of the business include;

                           -    Peak trading periods;
                           -    Stocktake; and
                           -    Where there are other team members in that area already on leave, creating an
                                operational difficulty.

  11.6      Where a team member owes 46 banked hours the team member must make every effort to
            work the hours required to reduce the amount of hours owed. Notwithstanding, a part time team
            member working 1040 hours or less per year, can not be required by Bunnings to work more
            than 30 hours in any week to reduce the amount of hours owed. By agreement a part time team
            member working 1040 hours or less per year, may work up to 46 hours in any week. Any
            arrangement to reduce hours owed will be in accordance with clause 10.

            Nothing in this clause prevents a team member seeking to reduce hours owed prior to the
            accrual of 46 hours. Preference will be given to taking time off as full days once a team member
            is owed 15.2 hours or more.

            The company shall endeavour to accommodate team member requests for time off at the time
            requested by the team member.

  11.7      A Bank of Hours report is to be displayed in the tearoom each fortnight.

                 she had worked during the period of sick/family leave, in accordance with Division 5 of

             payment of sick leave will be as provided by clause 23.7.1. In the event that there are
             legislative changes to the operation of Division 5 of Part 7 of the Workplace Relations Act 1996
             which would have the effect of permitting the lawful operation of clause 23.7.2, then clause

  23.10 Clause 23.9 shall not apply where a permanent team member has agreed to work overtime in
        excess of their agreed annual hours for the year, in accordance with clause 12.1.4. In this

        rostered but unable to work on account of personal ill health or accident or the ill health,
        accident or an unexpected emergency affecting a member of the team member’s immediate

        (or where not practicable for the team member, a statutory declaration) or other reasonable
        proof of the reasons for their absence when requested by Bunnings.

  \\Sda-server\edrive\INDUSTRIAL\REMOTE\AWARDS\AGRMFINL\Bunnings Warehouse Agreement 2006 OEA FINAL
                                                                                                        21
          Where Bunnings has made a definite decision it no longer wishes between one and 14 team
          members to do the job they have been doing to be done by anyone and that decision may lead
          to termination of employment, Bunnings will hold discussions with the team members directly
          affected.

33.2      The discussions will take place as soon as is practicable and will cover, amongst other matters

33.5      "Week's pay" means the ordinary time rate of pay for the team member concerned.

33.6      Provided severance payments will not exceed the amount the team member would have earned
          if employment with Bunnings had proceeded to the team member's normal retirement date.

33.7      A team member being made redundant may terminate the employment during the notice period
          and remain entitled to the severance payments under this clause. Provided the team member
          will not be entitled to payment in lieu of notice.

33.8      An employer, in a particular redundancy case, may within eight weeks of the date of termination,
          make application to the Australian Industrial Relations Commission (“the Commission”) to have
          the general severance pay prescription varied if the employer obtains acceptable alternative
          employment for a team member. The Dispute Resolution Procedure, at clause 36, shall apply,
          to the extent required, to an application to the Commission in accordance with any provision of
          this clause.


33.9      A full time team member who has been given notice of termination for redundancy will be
          entitled to take up to 7.6 hours off per week on full pay, pro rata for a part time team member, to
          seek other employment during the notice period as set out in clause 9. The timing of this time
          off will be mutually agreed with the relevant manager.

33.10 Where a business is before or after the date of this Agreement, transmitted from one Company
      (in this subclause called "the transmittor") to another Company (in this subclause called "the
      transmittee") and a team member who at the time of such transmission was a team member of
      the transmittor in that business becomes a team member of the transmittee:




\\Sda-server\edrive\INDUSTRIAL\REMOTE\AWARDS\AGRMFINL\Bunnings Warehouse Agreement 2006 OEA FINAL
                                                                                                                      22
            33.10.1 the continuity of the employment of the team member will be deemed not to have been
                    broken by reason of such transmission; and

            33.10.2 the period of employment the team member has had with the transmittor or any prior
                    transmittor will be deemed to be service of the team member with the transmittee.

            Severance pay will not apply if the team member does not accept an offer of comparable or
            nearly comparable employment with the transmittee.
            (In this subclause "business" includes trade, process, business or occupation and includes part
            of any such business and "transmission" includes transfer, conveyance, assignment or
            succession whether by agreement or by operation of law and "transmitted" has a corresponding
            meaning.)


  33.11 This clause will not apply to team members with less than one year's continuous service and the
        general obligation on Bunnings should be no more than to give relevant team members an
        indication of the impending redundancy at the first reasonable opportunity, and to take such
        steps as may be reasonable to facilitate the obtaining by the team members of suitable
        alternative employment.

  33.12 This clause does not apply to termination for reasons other than redundancy, or in the case of
        casual team members, limited tenure team members or team members engaged for a specific
        period of time or for a specified task or tasks.

                       changes or intended changes to or at the workplace that may reasonably be expected
                       to affect the safety and health of team members;

           34.2.5      consider such matters referred to the committee by the OHS representative and
                       perform such other functions as may be agreed with Bunnings.

  34.3     Where necessary the SDA National Secretary and the Bunnings National Manager of
           Occupational Health and Safety, or their nominees, will meet to discuss workplace safety
           issues.


  34.4     Bunnings will arrange for OHS Representatives to attend and be paid for appropriate OHS
           training courses as required by State legislation. For the avoidance of doubt, nothing in this
  \\Sda-server\edrive\INDUSTRIAL\REMOTE\AWARDS\AGRMFINL\Bunnings Warehouse Agreement 2006 OEA FINAL
                                                                                                             23
           clause deals with team members bound by the Agreement receiving leave to attend training
           (howsoever described) provided by a trade union or requires or permits Bunnings to send a
           team member on paid leave to an OHS training course conducted by a trade union.

  34.5     Bunnings will take steps to ensure workplace hazards are identified, assessed and where
           necessary appropriately controlled. Such steps will include hazard inspections and accident
           investigations.

  34.6     Bunnings shall provide each warehouse team member with such safety equipment as may be
           reasonably necessary to enable the warehouse team member to perform his/her duties. This
           will include where required the provision of adequate safety footwear.

  34.7     If a team member is required to work in the rain the employee shall be provided with suitable
           waterproof clothing and, upon request by the employee, with suitable wet weather footwear.
           Such clothing shall be returned at the end of the team member’s shift.

  34.8     Nothing in this clause shall remove, diminish or otherwise affect the application and operation of
           State and Territory health and safety laws.


35. UNIFORMS

  Bunnings is committed to providing appropriate clothing (e.g. polo shirts, windcheater/polar fleece) on
  commencement of employment and on the anniversary of each team member.


36. DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROCEDURE


  36.1      This procedure is an important method at Bunnings for addressing any dispute in relation to a
            matter arising under this Agreement. It is to be administered and utilised in the spirit and
            purpose for which it is intended i.e. a fair, objective and prompt review of any dispute in relation
            to a matter arising under this Agreement.

  36.2       In the event of a dispute in relation to a matter arising under this Agreement, in the first
            instance the parties will attempt to resolve the matter at the workplace by discussions between
            the employee concerned and the relevant supervisor and, if such discussions do not resolve the
            dispute, by discussions between the employee concerned and more senior levels of
            management as appropriate. This may, for example include a Complex Manager, an Area
            Manager or Bunnings Human Resources.

  36.3      In the event of a dispute arising in relation to a matter under this Agreement, the following
            procedure must be followed:

            36.3.1     The warehouse team member should discuss the problem first with their team leader or
                       immediate supervisor to resolve the matter. (Time must be set aside and any facts fully
                       investigated to ensure that the warehouse team member receives a specific response
                       within a reasonable time).

            36.3.2     If they cannot resolve the matter, the warehouse team member may raise it with the
                       manager’s manager, or another warehouse team member identified as available to
                       assist with resolving local difficulties, or both of them.

            36.3.3     If the matter is not resolved, it should be considered by the relevant Employee
                       Relations Manager within Bunnings.

  36.4      At any stage of the dispute resolution process, a party to the dispute may appoint
            another person, organisation or association to accompany or represent them in relation to the
            dispute. Warehouse team members are entitled to approach the SDA at any stage for advice or

  \\Sda-server\edrive\INDUSTRIAL\REMOTE\AWARDS\AGRMFINL\Bunnings Warehouse Agreement 2006 OEA FINAL
                                                                                                              24
            assistance.

  36.5       If a dispute in relation to a matter arising under the Agreement is unable to be resolved at the
            workplace, and all agreed steps for resolving it have been taken, the dispute may be referred to
            the Commission for resolution by mediation and/or conciliation and/or arbitration. If arbitration is
            necessary the Commission may exercise such procedural powers in relation to hearings,
            witnesses, evidence and submissions that are necessary to make the arbitration effective. For
            the purposes of this clause, arbitration includes any appeal.

  36.6      Work to Continue

            While the procedure in 36.3 is being pursued, work must continue in line with the terms of the
            Agreement, without affecting the rights of either the warehouse team members or Bunnings

41. Exclusion of Prohibited Content

   41.1      It is the express intention of the parties to this Agreement that the Agreement not contain
             prohibited content. In conformity with this intention, Bunnings has taken independent advice
             about the content of the proposed Agreement. Acting on that advice, several provisions in the
             parties’ draft agreement were identified as prohibited content and removed from the proposed
             Agreement before it was signed, and lodged in accordance with the Workplace Relations Act
             1996.

   41.2      In the event that it should be later found that this Agreement does contain a provision containing
             prohibited content, that provision or part of the provision (as the case requires) (the “offending
             provision”) shall be of no effect and severed from this Agreement without invalidating or
             modifying the remainder of the Agreement and the offending provision will be deemed not to
             have at any time formed part of the Agreement.

   41.3      In this Agreement, prohibited content has the same meaning as it does in the Workplace
             Relations Act 1996 and the Workplace Relations Regulations 2006.
