Just a quick update, the National Distribution Union has just come to an agreement with Progressives covering progressives over 4,000 supermarket workers though this has not been agreed to by workers yet. Unfortunately this agreement does not cover the 500 locked out distribution workers and progressives appears to be set on starving them out. I do not have details of the agreement yet as workers have not yet voted on it. It is suprising that this agreement came so quickly (less than a week) and Laila Harre put this down to bargaining. I only hope that Progressives are the one who backed down here and that the union has not settled for a low offer before industrial action could be taken.
