To: Takashige Negishi, President Yakult

Yakult workers deserve a fair pay rise, not a kick in the guts!

The Yakult workers reached an agreement with management on Wednesday 28 March. They successfully won all of their demands, including a 3% annual wage increase!

Yakult workers deserve a fair pay rise, not a kick in the guts!

2% WAGE RISE IS A KICK IN THE GUTS – YAKULT WORKERS DESERVE FAIR PAY!

Yakult workers in Dandenong South are taking indefinite action for a fair increase of 3% - we know that Yakult can afford it. Australia is a high growth region for Yakult and in 2016-17 they raked in profits of $332 MILLION!

While Yakult’s profits grow, workers’ wages have stagnated. The cost of living has been increasing while our wages haven’t. Low wage growth effects our families and communities. It’s not fair that we are falling behind because companies like Yakult won’t lift wages.

SUPPORT NUW MEMBERS MAKING A STAND FOR FAIR PAY - ALL WORKERS DESERVE A FAIR SHARE!

Why is this important?

Workers deserve a fair pay rise, the cost of living is increasing and wages are not. Yakult is making millions of profits and workers are struggling to keep up. This is a kick in the guts!
