Australia: strike and solidarity win new agreement for women cheese workers

Workers at Jindi Cheese in Victoria, owned by French-based dairy transnational Lactalis, have ended their 15-day strike by unanimously voting to approve a new 4-year collective agreement which brings substantial pay increases.

Although the federal government’s Fair Work Commission must approve the agreement before the details can be made public, union members are proud of the gains they have won in the struggle for pay equality.

The strikers were supported by United Workers Union (UWU) members at other Lactalis plants in Australia who provided solidarity and material support.

The UWU has thanked the IUF and its affiliates for their support which came at a critical time in the dispute.
