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

Our Coles Online member-led negotiating team has met with management again.
They told management that Coles’ rejection of our status, rights and conditions as drivers is not good enough.
The Coles Online member-led negotiating team have been meeting with management since April to secure a fair transport agreement.
In the latest negotiations meeting the TWU team told Coles management that Coles Online drivers will continue to fight to have Coles Online work recognised as transport work.
We used this meeting to tell Coles that rostering for drivers is vital for our safety at work.
Coles still won't listen.
The latest round of negotiations with Coles management have just finished. Coles Online drivers stood together to tell the company that trasnport work needs transport conditions.
As Coles Online drivers, we spend up to 90% of our time on the road, but Coles continues to classify us as retail workers to avoid offering the pay, conditions and safe working environment of a road transport worker.
