One of the worksites we're visiting in QLD today is Smiths, PepsiCo.
Recently about 25 workers were laid off in the multi-pack area to make way for automation. Workers have been asking for 3 years for air conditioning in the area because temperatures get too high to work in. Now that the robotics have been installed and people have lost their jobs, air conditioning is up and running.
What do we say to that?!?
NUW members are getting ready to bargain again this September and RESPECT is big on the agenda!
