Coles signs ground-breaking agreement
Coles has committed to ensuring safe and fair conditions for workers in the Coles transport supply chain and the on-demand economy.
Companies are posting booming profits while wages and conditions deteriorate. The Amazon Effect of cost-cutting from wealthy clients and exploitative competition from the gig economy poses an existential threat to good, secure transport jobs.
That’s why we’re uniting to raise standards across road transport and aviation.
We’re fighting for the same pay for the same job. We’re fighting to hold to account those with the economic power at the top of transport supply chains, like Amazon, Aldi and Qantas. We’re fighting for enforceable standards for all transport workers, including those in the gig economy.
TWU members are taking action to hold those with commercial power over transport contracts to account, giving workers greater strength to negotiate fairer, safer and more secure jobs.
Transport is the deadliest industry in Australia, and workers around the country have been calling through convoys and actions, for reform in the transport industry to fix the crisis.
We can’t afford for Qantas-style outsourcing and cuts to conditions to become the norm. Our industry desperately needs reform.
"As an owner-driver I'm with the TWU to campaign for a decent standard, a fair rate and safe conditions for all transport workers."
Transport workers are fighting for a fairer, safer industry. Join them today and secure your future.
