The question has been asked: Is our action having an effect
Answer: Yes

As you know Coles is supplying 'Retail Ready' to its stores for the days that we have notified strike action. As you know this is not cost effective, especially to the cutting stores.

As a result you will be seeing all the box meat that you have been allocated is very close to its Use By date; more expense to Coles.

Also, extra staff are being put on to cover shifts just in case workers don't turn up on all of the three days (that is why you can take day 1 or day 2 or day 3 or any combination of them; and you don't have to tell them in advance)

Empty meat cases in some stores is another thing that Coles are experiencing.

This is just a number of issues. If you know of more, Please Post on facebook.
