Strike off as Toll Logistics agrees to meet workers’ demands
After workers commenced strike action at Toll Logistics this morning, the company has agreed to conclude a new
collective agreement and settle outstanding legal cases, says FIRST Union organiser Jared Abbott.
Workers were prepared to strike until Christmas if necessary.
The new 3 year collective agreement includes back pay and a wage increase of 8 percent over 3 years.
FIRST Union looks forward to a productive relationship with the company going forward.
