The retail workers' union is taking Woolworths to the Fair Work Commission over the shopping giant's recent announcement of a company-wide restructure.
Woolies last week announced it would be shuffling staff members around to make way for a new operating model.
While it said it wouldn’t be reducing headcount, staffers were given booklet guides to redundancies and “redeployment”.
The SDA, or Shop, Distributive and Allied Employees' Association, represents workers in retail, fast food and warehousing.
“The SDA has serious concerns that (Woolworths) failed to properly consult workers and the union and that many of the planned redundancies are not genuine,” the union said in a post to its Facebook page.
“The proposed changes are in no way connected to the new Woolworths Agreement and is not something the SDA had any input into,” it said on its website.
“Remember, you must be consulted on changes to your employment and you should not feel pressured or rushed to make any decision.”
