SDA and Coles Bargaining Update

Go Back
  • 6th July 2017

Over the past two days the SDA has met with Coles as part of negotiations for a new Coles Agreement.

Yesterday the Company provided their opening position and today we responded with our list of claims. You can find our list here https://www.sda.com.au/media/Coles-LOC.jpg

Over the last week, Coles SDA Delegates from across the country came together to discuss our approach to negotiations.

During those meetings, SDA Delegates passed resolutions which support our list of claims to take to the Company to ensure that:

  • Your take-home pay is protected
  • Penalty rates are improved
  • Your existing conditions are secured

It is our priority to protect what SDA union members have fought hard to achieve over decades of bargaining.

So far in negotiations, progress has been made in relation to improved penalty rates and protections for take home pay. However there is still much more to do.

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 thank our SDA Delegates and members for their support and hard work to ensure Coles workers get a fair go.

We will continue to update all members throughout negotiations. You can also keep up to date on our website at www.sda.com.au/coles.

If you have any questions about this or any other workplace matter, please contact the SDA.


Yours sincerely, 

Peter O'Keeffe
