We represent RAFFWU members everyday at Coles.
We fight for our members in workplace bargaining and disputes over rosters, wages, safety and many other issues.
We have represented our members in disciplinary matters, in tribunals and in court.
A new deal at Coles
In 2023 RAFFWU members at Coles unanimously endorsed a list of claims that they will pursue for a new, more equitable enterprise agreement. An enterprise agreement locks in core conditions like wages, penalty rates, casual loadings, leave, job security, rostering and more.
Our members’ claims include:
- A living wage of $29/hour as a base rate for workers, before the addition of penalty rates, casual loading, overtime or any other loading;
- The abolition of junior rates, supported wage rates, trainee rates and any other poverty rates at Coles;
- Proper penalty rates for weekends, evenings and public holidays;
- Improved job security and conversion rights for casual Coles workers
You can read the full list of member claims here.
Ever since early 2020 we have been campaigning to get Coles to the negotiating table for a new enterprise agreement. RAFFWU is the only union representing Coles workers that is taking action to secure the pay and conditions that our members need.
