We call upon the Victorian Government to amend planning laws to require shopping centre owners to provide free and safe parking for retail and fast food workers at their centres.
Retail and fast food workers perform a very important role for the community. Very often they live long distances from work across suburbs and have no choice but to drive to work.
Traditionally in the majority of cases parking at work has been free for retail and fast food workers.
Recently Southland has announced plans charge workers for parking. Southland workers could be forced to fork out up to $1300 a year extra.
This is a cost retail and fast food workers cannot afford and do not deserve.
There is also a health and safety risk if workers must park a long distance away at night.
The SDA stands with workers against unfair parking charges.
I work full time at Southland, that means on average I spend $25/week on parking. And that’s if they don’t stuff up and charge me $6.
its really unfair to pay for parking at work places as we are there just to work. employer must be made responsible to provide parking facility for its employees.
Westfield deal with millions of dollars we
deal with $20.45/hour...$1300 per annum is a substantial penalty to park exposed to the elements on an unprotected roof with some lengthy delay challenges to exit...I wonder who the "Genius" is who came up with this brilliant idea to create extra wealth for Westfield at the expense
of those who keep it functioning?
