Our campaigns meant Coles promised to return penalty rates, shift rates, breaks, free uniforms and more in 2017.
In bargaining, Coles and SDA agreed to cut other conditions, and not put in place fair protections. The 2017 EBA should be so much better. All the great parts are as a result of RAFFWU. All the cuts and concessions were delivered by SDA.
Representing Members at Coles
We represented members throughout bargaining with Coles. We participated in all bargaining meetings since Coles announced it would bargain in late June 2017.
We represent members everyday about issues in store - such as roster changes, disciplinary action, pay issues and any other concern.

Now is the time to have a union in your corner that fights for your rights, doesn't concede to the management line and campaigns for the best possible outcome. That is RAFFWU.
If you were told voting "no" would return workers to the Minimum Award - or cut your rate of pay - please complete our special online survey here.
RAFFWU members are active in store, with workmates and throughout the negotiations. The cuts to conditions and establishment of a two tier workforce will mean massive upheaval and major roster changes. More information is available in our special videos published here.
