New Poultry Organising Committee up and running
On Saturday 28 July, poultry workers across Victoria, from as far away as Bendigo and Geelong, met in Melbourne for the first Industry Organising Committee.
Workers have resolved to conduct a comprehensive safety audit to push for better jobs in the industry. The safety audit will take place on sites across Victoria.
Poultry workers in South Australia and Western Australia will meet for their own industry organising meetings soon and discuss the next steps in the Better Jobs 4 Better Chicken campaign.
Poultry workers from the Victorian Industry Organising Committee and NUW Officials will be conducting surveys with workers to rigorously collect industry facts and information regarding important safety standards such as line speeds and manual handling, training, bullying and reporting, and food safety.
Poultry workers are in the process of standardising and cleaning up their industry!
