Coca Cola: Don't freeze our wages!

COCA COLA WORKERS WIN! Coke workers in WA endorsed a new deal that see significant improvements on what the company originally offered! Despite Coca Cola repeatedly trying to force workers to vote for an offer that included wage freeze in year 1 and average pay rises of less than 1% per year for remaining 3 years, workers voted NO again and again and endorsed a protected action ballot.

Now they’ve won $1000 back pay for year 1 and 6%, 3%, 3% for the lowest paid workers and 4%, 2%, 2% for those on a higher rate, an increase on 24/6 shift roster allowance from 27% to 28.5% and more!

None of this would have been possible without Union members sticking together. When members stick together, they win!

After months of negotiating, Coca-Cola in WA has put out an agreement that is a total fizzer! Coca Cola wants to FREEZE our pay for the first year, with a 0% pay rise, and then low pay rises of only 2%, 1.5% and 1.5% for some workers. This four year agreement locks in unfair conditions, that allow managers to pick and choose who earns more and who misses out, and they have refused to address ANY of our reasonable claims.

Please let Coca Cola know you support our fight to stop the wage freeze and for a FAIR offer that considers our claims!

Why is this important?

Coca Cola is one of the biggest and most profitable brands in the WORLD. They can afford a fair pay rise for hard working manufacturing workers like us! We have worked loyally for the company for years, we deserve a fair pay rise.
