Coles' revenue last year was over $37 billion and its top executive have million-dollar pay packets.
Yet when it comes to paying the drivers delivering their groceries to customers, Coles is paying well below other retailers.
"Only together can we make sure Coles get the message that we intend to keep fighting for our rights" - Stefan Kooman, Coles Online Driver
As drivers at Coles Online, we have made some important progress. In negotiations with Coles, driver won increased payments for part-time workers.
But this is just the beginning. We need to set an industry standard for online drivers across all the retailers so that no one is short-changed on rates or hours.
The way to do this is by joining with other online drivers as a part of the Transport Workers' Union to demand that profitable retailers pay their fair share.
