Majority of NUW members vote to endorse action at PFD Food services

Workers at PFD Food Services in South Australia have endorsed action at the site today after negotiations with the company stalled.

 

PFD Food Services is ranked 14th most profitable private company in Australia (The Financial Review 2017) with a 3.5% profit increase over 2016-2017. Their current yearly revenue stands at $1.86 billion. Hard working members are currently bargaining for better conditions and a fair slice of the profit.

 

However, this wealthy company are unwilling to offer a pay increase of more than 2.5%! Workers deserve a fair share of the profits and an increase of 3% Workers are also demanding that their applications for leave receive a response within one week, so that they can plan their lives and time with family and friends. A huge majority of NUW members have voted to endorse a ban on overtime, 24 hour rolling stoppages and indefinite stoppages - we're not backing down! If the company do not come to the table with a better deal then workers are ready to take action to win Jobs You Can Count On and a fair deal for all working people.
