Silcar Communications: EA negotiations update

The CWU met with Silcar on Thursday 20 July to try to wrap up arrangements for the transfer of employees from the existing Silcar EA to the Visionstream Field Workforce EA. 

Negotiations for this transfer have now been going on for over 18 months and details of the offer to employees covered by the current Silcar Communications EA have been finalised. 

However the CWU’s legal advisors have raised a number of issues about the processes involved in moving employees from one EA to the other, should the proposed arrangements be agreed to by a majority of members. 

While the CWU does not want to delay voting on the proposal that has been finally arrived at in negotiations, we must ensure that members are protected from any unforeseen consequences of these arrangements such as a gap in continuity of service. 

The CWU and Silcar are continuing to work through these legal questions with a view to holding a vote on the proposal by the end of August.
