VRDL Statement: Chemist Warehouse Industrial Action

MEDIA / / by jcdadmin

The Victorian Roller Derby League (VRDL) has been made aware of industrial action being taken at Chemist Warehouse distribution centres in Victoria and Queensland today.

As a major sponsor of the Victorian Roller Derby League, we are currently in discussion with Chemist Warehouse around the issues being raised by the industrial action.

We recognise that Chemist Warehouse are major sponsors of women’s sport across Australia, supporting the inaugural season of the AFLW, the Australian Women’s National Basketball League, and the Australian Opals, as well as the Victorian Roller Derby League.

We encourage negotiation between all parties in good faith to demonstrate that Chemist Warehouse’s support for women extends to not only women in sport, but also the men and women who work for Chemist Warehouse.
