The ETU has been made aware that Formway Group may have fallen behind on the payment of various entitlements including superannuation payments.
Your current agreement requires Formway to pay $115 per week into MERT redundancy trust. All members are also entitled to 9.5% superannuation – by law this must be paid into your chosen super fund on a monthly basis.
It is concerning that a company the size of Formway has chosen to fall behind in the payment of compulsory entitlements, particularly given these items must be paid by law and in accordance with the current enterprise agreement.
The ETU is advising all members to immediately contact both MERT redundancy trust and your chosen superannuation fund to find out when the last payment was made into your account and if your entitlements are up to date.
MERT REDUNDANCY TRUST: 1800 023 692
Once you have spoken to MERT and your super fund, if there are any underpayments please contact ETU Assistant Secretary Justin Page on 0414 877 301 or firstname.lastname@example.org
There are also a number of employees at Formway that have not yet joined the ETU – with EBA negotiations due to begin it is imperative that we have maximum membership to ensure that we keep all current entitlements AND win a decent wage increase.
With potential major redundancy and super underpayments and looming EBA negotiations, there has never been a more important time to be an ETU member.
