Coles warehouse workers met two days into an indefinite strike on July 12 and voted unanimously to reject the latest offer from their direct employer Toll Logistics. Hundreds had gathered on a picket line to prevent trucks entering the site.
Striking workers outside the warehouse, which owner Coles outsources to Toll, told Green Left Weekly that the offer wasn’t really “new”, but was only tweaked slightly from the old offer.
It did not address the issues workers say are central to the dispute, including the right to choose whether to work on public holidays, have rostered days off once a month, shift loading for a whole shift, the automatic option of permanent work after six months and a pay rise equal to other Coles warehouses.
