Late last night, union and company negotiators reached a settlement at the Department of Labour.
Pay rises will be 50c now and 50c in 6 months. People will get paid for stat. holidays over the lock-out. And a bunch of other improvements in conditions that will really make a difference for these people’s lives.
Cheers for people’s support and solidarity. It was the key to victory.
Union members will be going back to work with heads held high.
This was a great demonstration of solidarity in action. Well done to the workers and everyone involved for standing up to the company’s lockout and giving them a good kicking.
