Visy Workers Victorious

The struggle is long but hope is longer

Hi everybody,

The Visy dispute in Dandenong has ended in victory for the workers. The final sticking points were dropping all charges against workers and community members, as well as out of work payments. These were worked out in deal on Friday. All charges against workers and community members have been dropped.

The workers were able to stop the attempt by management to undermine the union by attacking casuals. There is a short article about the dispute on the AMWU website: http://www.amwu.org.au/read-article/news-detail/618/Visy-workers-secure-casual-pay-rates-and-vote-to-return-to-work/

Congratulations to everyone involved.

As the Visy workers have shown: dare to struggle, dare to win!
