Toll has responded to the TWU’s log of claims negatively in the second round of bargaining held in Sydney on April 12 and 13.
Toll is continuing to push the line that it cannot afford to pursue best practice on many job protection measures.
We need more than a line, we need to hear that Toll has a real plan to take the business forward and not just attack our rights, our voice and our conditions.
During meetings it became apparent that Toll was attempting to implement policy changes without proper consultation; this included changes to Drug and Alcohol and disciplinary measures for speeding. Despite Toll’s efforts to push things through the TWU was successful in the following:
• On Drug and Alcohol policy, the company has agreed to delay its implementation until July 1, 2017
• On discipline for speeding, Toll agreed to establishing a sub-committee consisting of delegates and management
Toll is financially stable and secure.
Japan Post is one of the largest and wealthiest companies in the world. We will not pay for its past mismanagement.
To show the company we are serious about pursuing our claims and that we will not take a step backwards on this agreement, we need to show our strength in solidarity.
Now is your chance to have your say on Toll’s claim. Attend report back meetings, get all the information and make your voice heard.
The next two-day bargaining committee will take place on May 31.
