Melbourne Cadbury workers set to strike

Hundreds of Melbourne Cadbury workers are set to go on strike as they push for the global confectionery giant to give them job security and better pay and conditions.

Almost 360 workers from two Melbourne sites will go on strike from tomorrow until early Saturday, while they will also refuse to work any overtime until Monday.

The Australian Manufacturing Workers’ Union (AMWU) said the workers had been forced to take strike action because the chocolate company had been delaying converting them to permanent roles for years.

“Some of these workers have been in insecure work for up to ten years,” AMWU Victoria Secretary Tony Mavromatis said.

“Cadbury workers have kept us stocked up with chocolate during the pandemic, but Cadbury haven’t been sweet to their workers. “

AMWU National Secretary Steve Murphy said the workers had helped Cadbury’s sales surge throughout the COVID-19 pandemic but were not being fairly treated, let alone rewarded.

“Cadbury workers who’ve helped the company’s sales boom during a pandemic deserve secure jobs – jobs they can count on.

“These workers just want certainty and security.”
