Toyota completely caved in
Even in these dark times it is possible to win. Yet again workers were able to stare down legal threats from the management.

Congratulations to the AMWU and ETU maintenance workers at Toyota in Altona who won their strike. Toyota completely caved in.
Tony Brooks secured a tradespersons job on afternoon shift.
All legal action against striking workers will be dropped
Toyota agreed to an improved dispute settlement procedure.
The strike started on Wednesday [20 Sept] in support of the AMWU senior delegate [Tony Brooks]. During the consolidation process 795 employees from Port Melbourne had been given an option of either transferring their job to Altona or taking redundancy. Tony was the only employee not offered his existing position. He was locked out on 29 August and offered a lower skilled job on the production line, he refused and his fellow workers have rallied around him.
On Thursday picket activity increased and a number of trucks were turned away. Toyota then signalled they wanted to talk and the picket was lifted. Negotiations with officials from the ETU and the AMWU took place at 12pm Friday [21/9] and a mass meeting at 4pm voted to return to work.
Yet again workers were able to stare down legal threats from the management. Solidarity between striking workers and the community works!!!
