Ballarat Grill'd

Ballarat Grill'd Action!

 

WE'RE TAKING ACTION AT OUR LOCAL GRILL'D TO LET MANAGEMENT KNOW ITS DODGY TRAINEESHIP SCAM IS UNACCEPTABLE!

Grill’d have tried to build their image as an ethical, community-minded business. So why can’t they pay their workers a fair and decent wage?

Grill’d are pressuring workers to do dodgy traineeships.

These traineeships are a joke. The “skills” you’re taught are basic things you’re already learning on the job, like how to clean up the store at the end of a shift. But if you don’t do the traineeship, you don’t get to work at Grill’d.

 

We'll keep campaigning until Grill'd changes its ways!

 

WHERE: Ballarat Grill'd

WHEN: 12pm, Tuesday 17th December

WHEN: Saturday December 21st, 10am!

WHERE: Glenhuntly Road, Elsternwick

WHAT: A blitz of retail and hospitality venues before the holiday season!
