Workers at Streets’ Minto ice cream factory in Sydney have agreed to an in-principle settlement of their long-running dispute over pay and conditions. Features of the new agreement between Unilever and the Australian Manufacturing Workers Union include a pay freeze for the next 12 months, changes to rosters, and a reduction in work breaks from 30 minutes to 20 minutes. As a result of the in-principle agreement, unions have agreed to withdraw their campaign for a consumer boycott of Streets’ brands.
