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!
