Unions are calling for a boycott of Chemist Warehouse retail outlets, to support striking warehouse workers who are facing intimidation: “Chemist Warehouse stores appear to be running low on goods as allegations emerged that striking workers have been targeted with violence and threats at the picket line. … [O]ne protester said her car tyres were slashed, while others were hospitalised after being struck by trucks, the National Union of Workers alleged. Police were called over one threat.” The striking workers are demanding pay in line with industry standards, job security, and an end to sexual harassment. You can support the campaign by boycotting Chemist Warehouse, signing the petition, and donating to the strike fund.
