Community Assembly to support 500 striking Coles Wharehouse workers starts Tuesday 10 July
Support Toll workers’ strike against substandard wages and conditions
Join the community assembly
From 6am on Tuesday 10 July, there will be a peaceful community assembly outside the Coles Somerton distribution centre, Union Road (near corner of Somerton Road), Somerton. (Melways ref 180 C9)
The community assembly will run 24 hours a day until the workers achieve their demands. Please come and show your support.
Why the workers deserve support
Coles outsource this warehouse to Toll, who pay the workers at Somerton up to 20% less pay than other Coles warehouse workers. They get no rostered day off, and no shift loading for most of their afternoon and night shifts. Rights for casual employees and for union reps are inferior to other Coles warehouses.
Workers at Coles Somerton are members of the National Union of Workers. They have decided that there is no reason for them to accept a cut-price deal. They are striking to demand the same pay and conditions as other Coles warehouse workers.
