Silcar Communications: EA arrangements close to finalisation

The CWU met with Silcar Communications on Thursday 22 June to attempt to finalise outstanding matters in relation to the proposed new Enterprise Agreement (EA) arrangements. 

As Silcar members would be aware, those arrangements, if endorsed by Silcar employees, will see the existing Silcar workforce transfer onto the Visionstream Field Workforce Agreement but with certain guarantees in relation to current entitlements. 

Bargaining over those entitlements has now effectively concluded and while full agreement has not been reached the parties are now focussing on the details of the proposed transfer. 

This is an unusual process and both the CWU and Silcar are keen to make sure that there are no unanticipated legal problems with it. 

The CWU’s lawyers have raised a number of technical issues which we put before Silcar at the meeting and which Silcar has undertaken to address. 

As soon as these have been dealt with another round of employee consultations will be held. The intention is to have all the relevant paperwork available at these meetings, including both the proposed EA and the letters to individual employees outlining their conditions under the transfer arrangements. 

The aim is to hold a vote before the end of July.
