Workers at Coles and Woolworths have had enough.
These two corporate giants have recorded record profits during a cost-of-living crisis, while wages and conditions for their workers have gone backwards.
In October 2023, RAFFWU members at Coles and Woolworths went on strike. Their two-hour stop work action was the first nationally coordinated strike by supermarket workers in Australian history – a Superstrike!
Our members walked out in Canberra, Broken Hill, Melbourne, Sydney, Perth and Brisbane. This unprecedented industrial action gained national media coverage.
RAFFWU members at Coles and Woolworths have voted to continue their industrial action in December 2023, until the bosses give workers what they deserve: job security, safe workplaces and a living wage.
Click on this link for more information about Superstrike actions in December – no RAFFWU member will lose pay for participating in industrial action because our Strike Fund will compensate them.
Only RAFFWU members at Coles and Woolworths are able to take protected industrial action during this campaign.
