Indeed, any Australian citizen that has had occasion to legitimately complain against any local corporation is aware of a new un-Australian culture of denial, stalling, blaming the victim and consciously making every effort to avoid responsibility for policy failures and other offences against consumers, employees and the public. And so it is with major supermarket COLES -- a Wesfarmers enterprise -- which company has been and continues to be under the executive management of Brits and other foreigners for decades. Now please note, the emphasis on “foreign/er” is only to highlight the lack of knowledge and familiarity with TRADITIONAL AUSTRALIAN CULTURAL VALUES, most notably, the FAIR GO!

Bill Shorten, no account where it counts image McDonalds, Coles, Woolworths workers lose in union pay deals Ben Schneiders, Nick Toscano, Royce Millar via mod, Friday, May 20 2016, 8:48am
Hundreds of thousands of Australian workers ripped off by SDA union's cozy deal with multinationals. This is clearly Shorten's province and unfortunately Shorten has a track record of selling out workers. SUPPORT your traditional support base Bill, or be confirmed as just another puppet of the corporations. The following story reveals much, especially the dirty trick the SDA pulled on its members. The union is incredibly supporting Coles, not workers, in its case against an employee taking action against Coles for decreased overall wages -- which, according to industrial law is illegal as no EBA should leave workers worse off than legally set award rates.

There is no mystery surrounding Grant O'Brien's fate, he simply failed to manage adequately and allowed the rot to set in, which was evident right down the chain of command to local store managers. A disgraceful effort in customer and staff relations. (story and 1 image)

text Mass Migration of Woolies Executives Indicative of Incompetent CEO Sue Mitchell via mod, Tuesday, May 26 2015, 12:52pm
Some were obviously pushed others resigned but the entire fiasco must be seen as a captain losing control of his ship. It is little wonder considering the appalling behaviour and incompetence of upper management in general that allowed former duopolist partner, Coles, to rise at lightning speed, notwithstanding challenges from Aldi and other major players in food retailing. To hold the lead and then gift it to the competition is a corporation’s unforgivable folly, Mr CEO, Grant O’Brien.

woolieslogo.jpg image Inadequate Belated Response from Woolworths HR mod, Wednesday, Dec 10 2014, 10:25pm
Isn’t it always the way with corporate upper management to avoid directly responding to issues and complaints that compromise them and expose THEIR incompetence and unfair practices; we are unable to publish the content of the letter to the complainant due to restrictions, however, we are able to divulge that Woolworths’ HR ‘director’, David Guise, who is clearly responsible for dealing with the situation to the best of his ‘ability’, has instead attempted to delegate the matter and refer it on to the operations manager -- ‘too hot to handle’ issues usually result in avoidance and ‘buck-passing’ in corporate environments and Woolworths is no exception, a very poor show indeed.
