JB Hi-Fi staff plan further pickets

About 100 JB Hi-Fi workers who are Unite union members plan more industrial action after striking at the retailer’s Wellington store today. Unite organiser Omar Hamed says the workers will undertake rolling industrial action, including rallies outside JB Hi-Fi’s flagship stores, to cause "maximum disruption". According to a statement on the Unite website, the union has been negotiating with JB Hi-Fi management for more than six months for a wage rise under a collective agreement. Hamed says about 100 JB Hi-Fi staff from around the country are negotiating for the agreement. The statement says most JB Hi-Fi staff are paid $13.50, adding Australian JB Hi-Fi staff are paid nearly twice as much. It says the employees haven’t had a pay rise in two years. "We’ll keep pestering until we get some money on the table," Hamed told Reseller News. He said staff would take industrial action at times when the stores were busy or short staffed. Reseller News has not yet been able to contact JB Hifi CEO Richard Uechtritz.
