Respect for our Poultry Workers: Safer Work, Better Jobs, Quality Chicken

This is a campaign aimed at building a better poultry industry, one that provides quality jobs for workers, and better chicken for families and communities.

The three main objectives of the campaign are:
Abolishing unethical and unlawful employment practices in the industry – these methods include sham contracting, cash paid workers, over-casualisation and piece rates.

Workers rights’ – this is about building a working environment that fosters a commitment to Australian values of democracy and freedom of association. Interfering in peoples' work-lives by the coercion of members and delegates (or by other means), is disrespectful to workers’ rights. This is also about enshrining a safe work
environment for all in the industry – it’s a workers’ right to return home healthy.

Fair wage bargaining – is an Australian workplace right. Unlawful and unethical employment practices and attacks on workers’ rights like those found in many Australian poultry companies are not a path to fair wage bargaining, they significantly undermine it.

Our vision is of a poultry industry where all workers have better jobs and safer work, and all consumers have high quality chicken.

This is a campaign which asks a simple question: Do you care? If you do join the campaign on facebook or on twitter
