TWU

Our fight for a Transport Agreement


In negotiations, our member-led negotiating team made it clear that Coles Online drivers will fight for a safe and fair agreement.

They said that a transport agreement is the best way to secure our safety and conditions at work.


That’s why our team has applied to the Fair Work Commission to negotiate our own separate transport agreement that secures:

  • Safe, fair and appropriate rates of pay
  • Secure jobs
  • Transport industry penalty and overtime rates
  • Dedicated driver training
  • Dedicated WH&S committee for drivers
  • Transport specific personal protective equipment

We need to show Coles that we’re strong together

Talk to your TWU representative today about how you can build power and win at your store!

    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!!!!!
