Today the SDA met with Coles to begin negotiations for a new Coles Agreement and the Company provided their opening position.
Tomorrow, we’ll be taking our list of claims to the Company.
Over the last week, Coles SDA Delegates from across the country came together to discuss our approach to negotiations.
During those meetings, SDA Delegates passed resolutions which support our list of claims to take to the Company to ensure that:
- Your take-home pay is protected
- Penalty rates are improved
- Your existing conditions are secured
It is our priority to protect what SDA union members have fought hard to achieve over decades of bargaining.
Remember, no proposed Coles Agreement can be put in place without a vote of all employees. You will have the final say when it comes to any new Coles Agreement.
We thank our SDA Delegates and members for their support and hard work to ensure Coles workers get a fair go.
We will continue to update all members throughout negotiations.
Members with any questions about this or any other workplace matter should contact the SDA or speak to your SDA Delegate or Organiser.
