Workers from Chemist Warehouse in two states have gone on an indefinite strike over what they claim is a widespread culture of sexual harassment and labour exploitation.

The workers from the retail pharmacy chain gathered outside the company's distribution warehouse in Preston, in Melbourne's north, to announce the industrial action, which is also taking place at the company's storehouses in Somerton, Victoria as well as Eagle Farm in Brisbane.

Workers at the warehouses are demanding higher wages and an end to what they say is job casualisation and sexual harassment.
