A fair deal for Knorr-Bremse workers
Workers at Knorr-Bremse across Australia are exercising their legal right under the Fair Work Act to take industrial action in support of a fair deal in these challenging economic times.
Workers have overwhelmingly rejected the company offer. We request that Knorr-Bremse reengage in negotiations with union representatives in line with Knorr-Bremse’s sustainability principles.
Why is this important?
Knorr-Bremse’s Sustainability Report (2021) states that employees are one of the central pillars of the firm’s corporate responsibility strategy. It states that it is the firm’s “aspiration to protect employees’ rights and ensure fair and appropriate pay”.
It cannot be reasonably argued that the firm’s current offer in this round of enterprise bargaining, which represents a real pay cut on projected inflation figures and a decrease in the employment security of the workforce, meets this standard.
