Coles negotiations update – 15th August

January 19, 2017 Coles

The negotiations for a new enterprise agreement at Coles DCs have been ongoing since May of this year, and we’re continuing to fight for the protection of existing hard fought conditions.

The SDA is pressing the company for increased wage rises in recognition of improved productivity. There has also been further progress in the negotiations with agreement around the notification of casual hours and we are confident agreement will be reached on backpay of the first wage rise when an agreement is reached in principle.

The SDA will pursue the company further to reach agreement on voluntary work for employees on Christmas and New Years Eve.

The next meeting is scheduled to take place on Monday 25th August. Stay tuned for further updates.
