Mars Petcare Enterprise Agreement

Running an organization, business or department, big or small, is never easy. It is even more difficult when you work in a unionized sector. Sometimes you need help and our labour relations experts and negotiation specialists are the people you want for practical advice that works. Mars Petcare hopes to continue negotiations to reach an agreement that meets the needs of the company and its employees and supports the sustainability of the Wodonga site. Given the increase in ingredient prices due to drought and rising operating costs, Mars Petcare`s contractual terms for 2016 are no longer acceptable to the company. The Wodonga plant operates in a global market and, to guarantee new investments, the site must remain competitive. “The March proposal for a replacement agreement would have maintained the current base pay, with overtime and penalties higher than industry standards. We are disappointed that Associates voted against this proposal,” Brown said. Adelhelm Associates is Australia`s leading industrial relations consulting and business bargaining training firm, which helps companies and executives work pragmatically with employees and unions . . . .
