Wal Mart takeover of Coles should be stopped
Greens Senator Bob Brown expressed concern today at renewed reports that Wal Mart may be planning a takeover of Coles and called on the Treasurer to block any sale to a foreign corporation, not least Wal Mart.
"Wal Mart have a very worrying record on workers rights and the environment" Senator Brown said.
"A takeover risks the jobs and conditions of the 90,000 workers currently employed by Coles."
"Wal Mart has a record of sending jobs overseas," Senator Brown said.
