WHEN: 12 pm TODAY Saturday 28 November, 2020
WHERE: Coles Tooronga Village – 766 Toorak Road, Glen Iris, VIC. This is Coles’ flagship store and is co-located with their head office.
WHAT: As the United Workers Union’s boycott on Coles grows, 50 workers will stage a protest at Coles’ head office in Tooronga, Melbourne. They will be advising customers of Coles’ decision to lock out workers for three months at their Smeaton Grange warehouse in New South Wales, rather than negotiate transfer rights, improved redundancies and rights for casuals in the face of a looming site closure and automation.
WHO: United Workers Union Director of Logistics Matt Toner will be on site for comment and there will be speeches by workers who are exploited by Coles in their supply chain.
