In February, UWU wrote to ALDI Australia. We informed them of Broccolini® farm workers’ two pending court cases re. underpayments and award breaches occurring at Vizzarri farms. ALDI wrote to UWU, saying that they “take the allegations very seriously” – but they didn’t meet with us.
Broccolini® workers have reported that ALDI conducted an audit at Vizzarri’s Koo Wee Rup site. Vizzarri didn’t roster on half of their workforce at the main shed where they usually work. They moved many of the workers involved in court proceedings to a separate shed – 15 minutes away from their main site.
This seems to be a clear attempt to manipulate and distort the audit. Vizzarri is not a company that wants to do the right thing and fix their problems.
