Members of the AMWU and ETU unions working at the six Murray Goulburn milk processing sites in Victoria have started protected industrial action in support of claims for a new workplace Agreement.

‘‘The protected industrial action includes a ban on overtime and call backs for the next six months or until agreement is reached on the terms of the new workplace Agreement” said ETU Organiser Peter Mooney.

‘‘The company has also been notified of a 24 hour stoppage of work to take place on Friday 4th July. Our members have further endorsed the unions to notify the company of further stoppages of work if agreement is not reached on the new workplace Agreement.”

‘‘The commencement of this protected industrial action follows six months of negotiations between the company and the unions that have not resulted in agreement being reached on the new workplace Agreement.”

Muray Goulburn has declined comment but has said its operations will continue as normal.
