Concrete placement workers employed by Boral/De Martin and Gasparini (DMG) have won their battle for a union Agreement, securing better pay and conditions, including restoration of their site allowance.
The workers greeted the news from the negotiating team on February 18 with fists in the air and chants of, "Who are we? We're CFMEU!"
A substandard, non-union agreement was put to the workers by the company before Christmas.
This was overwhelmingly rejected, and workers took protected strike action to secure a union agreement that would improve their pay and conditions.
