I am extremely pleased that this dispute has come to a satisfactory end.  I am delighted for the workers who I know feel vindicated by the outcome.

The Vita Cortex workers engaged their campaign with dignity and strength.  They were determined to see this through and they can be proud of the stance they took for their rights.

I have met with the workers on a number of occasions and lobbied for a solution to this dispute.  I want pay tribute to all those who supported the workers’ campaign over the last 140 days, as well as the Labour Relations Commission and officials and unions who were involved is bringing this dispute to an end.
