PPG PAINTS - PUTTING PROFITS BEFORE WORKING FAMILIES

PPG - the makers of household paint brands Taubmans, Bristol and Whiteknight, have locked out their workers instead of facing them at the bargaining table.

Why is this important?

My name is Robert Byrne and I'm an employee at PPG paints. Every year my workmates and I make PPG paint a lot of money, which has made them very rich and successful.

We have been breaking production records but now that we're bargaining for our new Agreement PPG has decided to use their success and money to try and take money and conditions from us.

Instead of negotiating with us fairly, PPG have decided to lock us out.

That’s why I’ve started this petition to show PPG that denying workers the right to work is unfair and in bad spirit.

Stand with us and show your support by signing this petition now.

I believe that every worker should be able to enjoy a fair work/life balance to spend quality time with their family - that’s all that we are asking for.

This heartless action by PPG means my family is missing out on my essential income. PPG is a multi-million dollar company - they should be bargaining in good faith, not denying our families their bread at the table.

Together, we can send a powerful message to PPG: Stop the bully- boy tactics, look us in the eye and negotiate – that’s what any reasonable employer would do.

Sign our petition to show your support!


Reasons for signing

  • Because its unfair that employees who have literally been working at the company loyally for 10 years get locked out like this. Goes to show that the employers don't care about fairness, its all about what they can get away with to increase their profits...
  • To support a fair pay rise and to end the industrial action which has devestated families before christmas
  • Heartless selfish just like the majority of big business in this country. I suppose some of Malcolm's tax cuts for big business will go to them. Get rid of the Turnbull govt
