The Australian Taxation Office (ATO) is currently on the hunt for employers who are not meeting their Superannuation Guarantee obligations.
Many CWU members are employed in large companies such as Telstra and Optus where employer superannuation payments are made regularly. In smaller companies, however, it is not unheard of for employers to delay making these payments –or not just pay them at all.
If you are in this position, contact your state CWU branch and the union will refer the issue on to the ATO. The ATO will recognise the union as a legitimate “third party” in the matter of superannuation payments and will automatically take the matter up.
The ATO advises that it takes action on every referral it receives from third parties such as the CWU.
