Coles Werribee Plaza 11 February

From 6am Wednesday 11 February the butchers, meat wrappers and cabinet attendants at Coles Werribee Plaza were on strike, along with many other AMIEU Coles members. Meatworkers from a number of other stores joined the Werribee Plaza picket.

Despite Coles trying to convince meatworkers that a grandfather clause is good enough AMIEU members know better. If the new butcher earns up to $12,000 less in a year and the new meat wrapper earns $8,000 less for doing the same job who would be given the work with penalties?
