Stop Workers Rights Abuses in Supermarket Supply Chain

If you own more than $500 worth of Woolworths and/or Wesfarmers (Coles) shares please sign on to support the resolution. SIGN RESOLUTION

To successfully lodge the resolutions we need to get 100 Woolworths and Wesfarmers (Coles) shareholders to sign on by next Wednesday.

If you’re a Coles or Woolworths shareholder, please sign on to this shareholders’ resolution which will help stop these companies from turning a blind eye to worker abuse, and force them to tell the public what they’re doing each year to end human rights abuses in their supply chain. The NUW has been working with the Australasian Centre for Corporate Responsibility (ACCR) to force Coles and Woolworths to take responsibility for ending the exploitation and abuse of the thousands of farm workers and other workers in their supply chains in Australia and overseas. The ACCR has drafted resolutions which will be presented at the companies’ Annual General Meetings (AGMs).

Coles and Woolworths have a huge amount of power to determine whether their suppliers respect workers’ rights. This power can be used to pressure suppliers to cut wages and conditions in pursuit of lower prices, or it can be used to ensure that all suppliers end worker rights abuse - but only if shareholders, workers and customers demand it.

Use your power as a shareholder to ensure the supermarkets support workers’ rights by signing on to the resolutions.
