10 million reasons why it pays to belong
In 2015 our union recovered $10 million for members in legal claims such as unfair dismissal settlements, annual leave entitlements, redundancy and superannuation claims. It pays to belong.
The Fair Work Commission has failed in in its duty to consider the circumstances of workers in its decision to terminate the Loy Yang power plant enterprise bargaining agreement, CFMEU Mining and Energy Victorian District Secretary, Geoff Dyke has said.
The Fair Work Commission yesterday scrapped the existing EBA at Loy Yang power plant, which has now reverted to the Electrical Industry Award 2010.
Mr Dyke said that workers would be at an extreme disadvantage under this award, forcing workers to accept severe pay cuts and insecure work conditions.
Our Union is saddened by the passing of distinguished retired Northern District miner Frank McCarron last Saturday.
Frank was a former Miners Federation Central Councillor (serving at the same time as General Secretary Andrew Vickers), a member of our Union’s Northern District Board of Management and President of the Liddell Miners Lodge.
Loy Yang workers to take protected industrial action following AGL’s refusal to bargain in good faith
Workers in AGL’s Loy Yang power plant will be taking protected industrial action on 28 December. The stop work action follows 14 months of attempts to bargain with AGL who refuses to genuinely bargain for a fair outcome for workers.
CFMEU Mining and Energy Victorian District Secretary, Geoff Dyke said he is disappointed the company has been unwilling to bring an end to the industrial dispute, instead attempting to pressure workers to accept insecure workplace conditions.
