TOLL truck drivers and warehouse workers have voted to strike for 24 hours on Friday in a dispute about job-security provisions.

The Transport Workers’ Union said workers voted 94% in favour of taking industrial action. The union said the ballot gives about 7000 workers protection under the Fair Work Act to strike.

TWU national secretary Michael Kaine said Toll workers don’t want to go on strike, especially during a pandemic, but “ they must because they have everything to lose”.

The union said TWU strike action has never and will never disrupt medical supplies or vaccines.
