Serco and AWA’s

che 22 August 2007 4

IBNNews has this piece on Canberra Defence Contractor Serco Sedexho having to front the Workplace Ombudsman for allegedly trying to force two young employees to sign Australian Workplace Agreements.

I heard that there was a bit of a kafuffle when Serco took over the Garrison Services contract last year but I haven’t heard of any troubles since then.

What's Your Opinion?

Well actually Serco Sodexho is an Australian company. It’s owners are Serco which is from the UK and has been a Defence (among other things) contractor for years and Sodexho (note the spelling) is French and has been a catering company for years.

Oh Serco Sodexho HQ is in Brisbane Australia mate….

Either way it doesn’t make it right.

Not if it gets in the way of making heaps of money!

Plus, as if some Frog sitting in a nice office in Paris gives a flying truck about some underpaid Australian in Canberra.

I thought Serco is a frog mob and thus would have very socialist views on workplace participation.
