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.

You can support their fight - USE THE FORM BELOW TO SEND A MESSAGE to the Asahi Group CEO in support of the NUW demand for 40 permanent jobs in Albury-Wodonga.

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!

To Mr. Naoki Izumiya, CEO, Asahi Group

Dear Mr. Izumiya

I have learned from the IUF that the National Union of Workers is calling for the creation of 40 permanent jobs for casual workers at the Albury-Wodonga factory in the negotiations for a new workplace agreement. I support this demand. The local community welcomed Asahi's arrival and the promise of new employment, yet 50% of the workers at the factory are still trapped in insecure casual employment. I urge you to act to ensure that the negotiations result in the creation of 40 new permanent jobs at Asahi Albury-Wodonga.

Sincerely yours
