Save Coles meat workers jobs
Coles is threatening to end their in-store butchery service, putting the jobs of over one thousand meat workers at risk.
Coles will make a decision later in July about the future of our jobs. This is a stressful time for meat workers like me, many of whom have been meat workers with Coles for over 20 years. I myself have worked at Coles for 26 years and do not want to be redeployed into a different role at Coles.
We need your help to put pressure on Coles CEO Steven Cain and tell him to save Coles meat workers jobs. Add your name to the petition now!
Why is this important?
Right now, I'm one of more than 1500 meat workers employed by Coles across Australia - and all of our jobs are at risk under their plan to end the in-store butchery service.
Coles is saying that they will "redeploy" some of us into different roles. This isn't good enough.
We have invaluable industry knowledge and customers trust us. Whether we are meat managers, qualified butchers or cabinet attendants we know our cuts of meat and can assist customers.
The Coles restructure would result in de-skilling, and worse pay and conditions.
Stand with meat workers by adding your name to our petition to save our jobs!
