Underwood Parcel Facility shift realignments boost full-time employment

In-depth Consultation over shift realignments has progressed to the commencement of implementation at Underwood Parcel Facility (UPF).

The new shift structure, which will be implemented over five phases, was necessary due to NSW and Victoria no longer providing a deep sort function to Queensland.

An influx of work to sort the product in Queensland evolved into a requirement to turn the rostering system at UPF upside down to ensure appropriate staffing levels. The Queensland Branch took advantage of this opportunity to provide more secure work for members at UPF – which will maximise quality full-time jobs, substantially reducing the facility’s reliance on casual labour over three specific phases.

As a result of the hard work put into the project by the local AURs, the Union is experiencing significant growth at UPF which will ensure further great outcomes in the future.
