DRIVERS STAND UNITED
Recently the Federal Court ruled the Road Transport and Distribution Award does not cover Coles Online drivers.
This decision means our application to the Fair Work Commission (FWC) for a separate Coles Online driver agreement is more important than ever.
Negotiations with Coles are ongoing but management continue with their scheme to drown out our voice amongst that of tens of thousands of store workers.
We know the FWC listens when workers stand united together.
That’s why it’s important for every driver in your store to sign the petition below.
This will show the FWC that we’re united in our request to be recognised as transport workers.
Sign up below to show Coles that drivers are serious about pay and conditions. For more information, contact your TWU official.
