After an 8 week strike, around 90 workers were able to retain their rostered days off and increase their wages. The workers are employed by Australian Paper in the northern Melbourne suburb of Preston and is the country’s biggest envelope manufacturing plant. The workers were ably supported by their union, the Australian Manufacturing Workers Union, throughout the weeks of dispute. While not every detail of the new agreement was settled, the workers were confident that outstanding issues would be resolved quickly.
