TWU

Stand together in our fight


Our member-led negotiating team has meet with management again.

During this meeting, Coles initially refused to pay drivers an agreed interim pay rise while negotiations continued.

But by standing together, our team were able to secure a 1.4% pay increase for Coles Online Drivers with back pay to 7 July.

Now more than ever we need to show Coles that we’re serious in our fight for a safe and fair agreement that secures:
•    Safe and fair wages
•    Driver consultation
•    Rostering and breaks that comply with fatigue management laws
•    Safe driving plans
•    Appropriate safety equipment for the work we do
•    Dedicated driver training
•    Fair dispute resolution procedures
•    Commitment to full-time positions for increased job security

Speak to your TWU delegate for more information on what happened in negotiations and make sure everyone at your store has signed the petition below!

    We need to extend our membership and keep pushing harder to obtain what is fair and just..We are in the TRANSPORT INDUSTRY plain and simple.

    I have been a driver at Online for 2 years now.I love the job and chatting with the customers and I work with a great close knit team.I just want the safety standards and pay and conditions that the Transport award delivers.I am over not being payed as a DRIVER and being paid under the 'RETAIL AWARD'.We have had many of our drivers join the TWU as they feel the same way.Now that WOOLIES Online has changed to company drivers and are going to be paid TRANSPORT WAGES,our campaign is really heating up.

    As always Coles is as weak as water when it comes to looking after their bloody hard working employees. Profits are put first and the safety of their workers and everyone else is a long way back in last place. Shame on you Coles Supermarkets, Shame!!!!!
