Dear Coles Member,
The AMIEU has been made aware that multiple Coles managers across our region are asking our members to change their rosters, because of the new agreement.
The new agreement has NOT been approved by the Fair Work Commission. It is not legal yet.
While it is true that Coles members voted YES to the new agreement, there is still a long way to go before the agreement becomes legal, and it could take as long as another 3 or 4 months, or even longer.
We will let you know when this happens.
Until then, if your manager is pressuring you to change your roster because of the new agreement, you do not have to do this. You can say NO.
Remember, the new agreement is NOT in force yet.
If this is happening to you, please email the details through to firstname.lastname@example.org.
