Domino`s Pizza rejected its new company deal in a shocking announcement after the union claimed the deal did not meet the requirements of the Fair Work Act. The union also argued that domino`s had not properly explained to workers the changes to the agreement and did not have formal permission to act on behalf of its 450 franchisees as the sole employer. Company agreements can be tailored to the needs of certain companies. An agreement must improve the overall situation of an employee in relation to the corresponding price or prices. Domino`s, however, announced Monday to the ASX that its 18,000 employees “will now stick to the distinction of the fast food industry instead of continuing to follow the approval of a new enterprise contract.” Due to the expiration of the agreement and price changes, Domino`s franchisees have to pay their employees much more than before. The likely effect is that Domino`s will experience a dramatic increase in labor costs this year, which could stifle spending in other areas, including innovation and promotion. In 2009, a company contract was registered for Domino employees, which has just expired.

While the previously operational corporate deal may have largely benefited the Domino`s franchise network between 2009 and today, it makes the pizza giant`s future a bit unclear. For example, a potential franchisee cannot rely on the financial success of another franchisee to assess the profitability of their potential investment. The significant increase in labor costs could put some employees at risk, for example if Domino`s introduced a policy of recruiting cheaper workers (such as young workers) and relocated tasks previously taken on by employees. Don Meij, CEO and chief executive of domino Group, said the new EBA was a simplified agreement with higher salaries for team members. To approve a new agreement, the Fair Work Commission must be convinced that staff would be better off overall than for sectoral signage. Employers must ensure that their company agreement complies with the rules and obligations of the Fair Work Act. Employers had to: Domino`s returned in January as an interim reward measure, until its new ABE was approved, after retail unions denounced outdated old deals that allowed stores not to pay full penalties or an occasional store. It is also important to note that, in the context of an enterprise agreement, a worker`s rate of pay must not be lower than the corresponding rate of pay under the modern bonus that would apply to the worker or under a national minimum wage provision.
