The SDA and Coles have met over the last two days continuing negotiations for a new Coles Supermarkets Agreement.
Negotiations this week have focused on SDA claims for rostering, entitlements and protections for part-time workers, domestic violence leave and compassionate leave.
As previously reported the company have proposed an Award based model for the new agreement with many changes.
This delivers on some of the SDA’s claims for improved penalty rates. The SDA continues to be focused on protecting take home pay, securing wage increases for all employees and retaining hard won conditions as we transition to new agreement.
You can see our log of claims here.
Our meetings continue next week.
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 will continue to update all members throughout negotiations.
