Silcar Communications to make revised EA offer

The CWU and other employee representatives met with Silcar Communications on Thursday 2nd March in an attempt to resolve outstanding issues in the current round of Enterprise Agreement (EA) negotiations. 

Management advised that in response to employee feedback it had revised its offer, with a key change being a restructuring of the payments for the proposed working hours buyout. 

These payments are being offered in exchange for employees agreeing to move from a 36 ¾ hour week to a 38 hour week. Silcar Communications had previously offered an across-the-board lump sum payment of $3,000 per employee for this change. 

The company is now proposing a schedule based on the current classification structure so that the amount being offered will more closely correspond to the impact of the change on individual employees. 

A separate uniform lump sum payment is still being proposed for the buyout of overtime. 

The company has also made an improved offer on redundancy payments. 

Details of this offer are to be put to employees in a further round of consultations scheduled for the week beginning 13 March.
