Workers at Asahi Australia need permanent jobs, not casual work
When Japan's Asahi Group acquired Australian bottled water company MountainH20, they announced ambitious plans to grow the business and double the workforce. Three years after the company set up a bottling plant in Albury-Wodonga, 50% of the workers at the factory are still stuck in insecure casual employment.
Casual work condemns workers to permanent insecurity and inequality of treatment. The IUF-affiliated National Union of Workers (NUW) is currently negotiating a new workplace agreement for the site. A key demand is the creation of 40 permanent jobs for casual workers at Asahi.

The NUW has also launched an on-line petition campaign to Asahi - you can sign their petition HERE - and you don't need an Australian postal code to sign on, use your own, wherever you are!
