Membership alert: Silcar Communications Long Service Leave entitlements

Silcar Communications employees should all be making sure that their Long Service Leave entitlements are being paid into the appropriate fund. 

During the course of the negotiations for future terms and conditions for Silcar Communications employees, it became apparent that in some cases long service leave payments were not being made according to the terms of the current Enterprise Agreement ie they were not being paid into a portable fund. 

Employees raised this matter with the CWU and the union subsequently made representations to management about the issue. As result, Silcar undertook to conduct a nation-wide audit of payments to see where there were problems. 

Silcar has now told the CWU that the audit is complete and that management believes that all cases of incorrect payment of current employees have been identified. 

Where this has been the case, accrued payments will be transferred into the fund nominated in the EA.  

Affected members should check to ensure that this has occurred. 

This still leaves a problem for employees who have left Silcar and now don’t have the benefit of portable entitlements. The CWU has pursued this issue with Silcar who have undertaken to see how they can address the problem. 

Silcar members who know of employees in this situation should contact the CWU.
