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.
When wealthy companies at the top of supply chains squeeze transport contracts, the rest of the supply chain is pressured to cut corners in safety. Transport workers are forced to work longer and harder to make ends meet. Far too many people are killed in truck crashes every year, while their families and communities are left devastated.
Transport workers in the gig economy are struggling on low pay, with few rights and no protection from abuse.
We’re fighting for a Safe Rates system that will lift standards for all transport workers. We’re fighting for the same pay for the same job and to ensure that wealthy retailers, manufacturers and oil companies at the top of the supply chain pay their fair share.
