Say no to Streets

Last month, my boss applied to the Fair Work Commission to terminate our collective agreement. If they are successful, my wages could be cut by 46%.

We can’t let Streets get away with this. My workmates and I cannot afford a 46% pay cut. And if we let Streets get away with it, other employers will be lining up to do the same.

Sign my petition now and show your support.

Why is this important?

I’m a production worker at Streets Ice Cream in Minto, NSW. I’ve worked there for over 15 years making iconic Australian ice creams like Golden Gaytime, Magnum, Cornetto and Paddle Pop. I can’t tell you my name because my boss has imposed a strict media policy that means I could be sacked for speaking out.

Employers like Streets are taking advantage of cop out clause in legislation that lets them terminate agreements that have been negotiated between workers and their employer. Employers are using cop out clauses all over the country to terminate agreements that have been fairly negotiated.

I need you to sign my petition below to send a message to Streets that Australian consumers will not accept workers being treated so unfairly.

  • If an employer imposes a media policy on workers that gags them, then it's a no-brainer that employer is doing something that is wrong and immoral.
  • To protect the right of the Australian workers.
  • Un-Australian
