Statement regarding industrial action by UWU members

At Country Road Group we are committed to ensuring a growing and sustainable future for our business that will enable us to invest in our teams and build capabilities. Over the past eight months we have been in consultation with bargaining representatives to agree on wage increases for the next three years through the EBA process. Through collaborative discussion we increased our initial offer in May; this offer is 11% higher than the award rate set by the Fair Work Commission (FWC), and reflects our values of fairness, flexibility and sustainability following meaningful consultation with our team. Our distribution centre team members have always been paid wages that are above the industry award rate set by the FWC.

Regrettably, some of our distribution centre team members have taken steps in preparation for industrial action. We support their right to take this action but cannot support the unsustainable outcomes they seek or reward action that negatively impacts our customers and team. We are firm in our position and clear in our responsibilities: fairness and sustainability in delivering wage growth will in turn support welfare and future opportunities for our entire team.
