Coming in to work this morning I was greeted by a laminated A4 poster stating that parking rates were increasing early February 2020. A quick phone call and I found out they're raising the price from $4 a day to $5 a day.

The already ludicrous annual price of $1040 for someone working 5 days a week is being raised to $1300 A year, an increase of $260.

To some this is a weeks rent, petrol for over a month or 2 weeks worth of groceries for their family. These staff are here to operate the centre. We keep the stores running, prepare food at the various cafes, restaurants and fast food outlets.  We work the public holidays so everyone can shop. 

We already have to park on the roof or other uncovered areas. When a severe weather event such as hail hits we can't just leave. Our cars are exposed to damage. Add to this fact that many times customers park in the staff parking area leaving no places for us to park. One incident I was charged $20 for the day due to there being no available staff parks. When I asked the person at the kiosk what I was supposed to do I was told "you don't have to drive to work"

Well enough is enough. I'm sure this isn't an isolated incident. Westfield's all over the nation are filled with workers who are forced to pay exorbitant fees to come and park at work.  We need to let them know that we won't simply accept this.
