Talks are ongoing between Fonterra Australia and the Australian Manufacturing Workers Union about 38 jobs to go at the Echuca site.GEORDIE COWAN August 21, 2014 4:00pm
The Australian Manufacturing Workers Union is in discussions with Fonterra Australia to save as many jobs as possible at Fonterra’s Echuca site.
Staff found out last week that 38 people would be made redundant at the site as the company sought to ‘‘better service the site for future success’’, according to the company’s ingredients and operations director Bruce Donnison.
The union is looking to lodge an application with the Fair Work Commission to help with the process.
AMWU food and confectionary regional secretary Tom Hale said while discussions did not go as far as hoped, it was the first of what would be a series of meetings.
One of the major sticking points was who the affected employees would be, he said.
