Coles Meetings

Go Back
  • 9th August 2017

Meetings between the SDA and Coles have continued over the past two days as part of negotiations for a new Coles Supermarkets Agreement.

Progress has been made around rostering protections, securing above award part-time provisions, fair access to additional hours and a new right for Coles part-time staff to increase core or contract hours to the average worked over a 12 month period- subject to business needs.

Significant progress has already been made on:

  • Improved penalty rates
  • Protections to the take-home pay of existing employees.
  • Improved tea breaks.
  • The retention of a number of leave provisions.

You can see our log of claims here.

The SDA continues to work hard to secure paid domestic violence leave and public holiday rights.

Wages are still to be discussed and the SDA continues to maintain the need for all staff to receive wage increases.

The company have proposed an Award based model for the new agreement with many changes.

Our meetings will continue at the end of the month.

Remember, no proposed Coles Agreement can be put in place without a vote of all employees. You will have the final say when it comes to any new Coles Agreement.

We will continue to update all members throughout negotiations.
