CAMPAIGN SUCCESS! Occupation ends with strong new agreement

[Workers ended their 5-day occupation by signing a strong new agreement which meets their bargaining demands and more.]

National Union of Workers (NUW) members at the International Flavours and Fragrances (IFF) facility in Dandenong (Victoria) have responded to a management lockout by occupying the lunchroom.

After months of fruitless bargaining for a new wage agreement which saw management demanding big concessions, union members voted to ban overtime and paperwork. Workers arriving for the early morning shift on January 27 were informed of the lockout and several dozen union members rushed inside as the gates were closing. They've installed themselves in the lunchroom while members and supporters demonstrate outside.

You can support them - Use the form below to SEND A MESSAGE to IFF urging the company to immediately start bargaining in good faith!

US-based International Flavours and Fragrances is one of the largest transnational makers of food ingredients and a supplier to many leading food and snack companies.
