Support Bitzer Workers on Strike

 Unknown.png

AMWU members are entering the sixth day of strike at Bitzer. 

Management at Bitzer have made no pay offer beyond the cost-of-living index, want to remove RDOs, stop contributing to income protection and pay any new workers the base award rate only rather than EBA rates.

As part of a strategy to cut full-time wages and conditions, Bitzer management also want to reduce the wages of about eight casual workers by nearly a third. It offers them no prospect of permanency, even though some have worked there for the past few years.
