METCASH UPDATE: Who’s sick of workers not getting a fair share of corporate profits?
NUW members at Metcash cold storage in Laverton in Victoria are fighting for a fair wage increase with no conditions lost – but the company keep pushing for concessions that would mean more money for Metcash and less money for workers.
This company made more than $210 million in profits last year, while its CEO Jeff Adams received almost $3.7 million in remuneration. And yet their warehouse workers can’t get a fair wage increase? Give us a break.
At tomorrow’s Metcash AGM, the company will no doubt approve the lofty pay cheques of its executives. It’s now time for Metcash and Jeff Adams to listen to their workers and approve their wage increase too!
