The problem with Aldi
Hundreds of people are dying on our roads in truck crashes every year. Big companies like Aldi are part of the problem – but they won’t own up to it or change their ways.
It is marked by alarming rates of death, injury and chronic health conditions, wage theft and pressures to work dangerously.
This is because wealthy clients at the top of supply chains are financially squeezing transport contracts.
It means transport companies are forced to undercut each other to win work. For operators to survive, pay, conditions and safety are all cut, including truck maintenance and fatigue management. It results in transport workers being pressured to work harder, longer and faster to make ends meet.
Truck crashes are leaving families and communities devastated.
We’re fighting for a Safe Rates system that will lift standards for all transport workers, funded by the wealthy retailers, manufacturers and oil companies at the top of the supply chain.
