Abattoir workers strike

November 09, 2017

MEMBERS of the Australasian Meat Industry Employees Union (AMIEU) are staging industrial action at Riverside Meats Echuca.

Employees of the meat processor created a picket line across the entrance of the business after negotiations about pay and conditions broke down.

Police were called to the scene after tensions flared over access to the site.

Workers have since agreed to allow access to the site in hope that negotiations will continue and said they will return tomorrow if Riverside Meats refuses to negotiate.
