Funeral and Mortality Scheme

BRANCH IMPLEMENTS

FUNERAL AND MORTALITY SCHEME

 

The Queensland Branch will be implementing a Funeral and Mortality Benefit Scheme which we hope will provide support to our members or their spouse upon the death of the member or spouse.  The Branch has funded the scheme out of its existing income and we are aware that the payment is not a large amount of money.  Member's main mortality benefits will still come from the death benefits associated with his/her superannuation fund.  This benefit is targeted at helping the member or their spouse in the immediate period after the death occurs of a partner.

 

I have printed a full copy of the Rules of the Funeral and Mortality Scheme so that members can understand their entitlements.  The Branch will administer the  scheme strictly in accordance with the Rules as approved by the Queensland Branch Executive as printed below.  The benefit is strictly only available to members who were financial at the time of their death and is not available to life members or members who have left the Union or are in arrears.

 

The commencement date of 1 July 2008 will also be strictly adhered to.  I am sure members will join me in congratulating the Queensland Branch Committee of Management on implementing this benefit for members.

FEDERAL JOURNAL ARTICLE

SOMETIMES YOU DON'T APPRECIATE WHAT YOU HAVE UNTIL IT IS GONE

 

Sadly, we were recently reminded of this old saying when the South Burnett Meatworks at Murgon closed its doors amid financial strife.  South Burnett had shut down a few times in the past and each time it had reopened with a new owner.  This time it had been operating for about six years and had seemed to be going quite well.

 

The Queensland Branch of our Union had managed to obtain a pretty good collective agreement which covered everyone employed doing the traditional meatworker jobs.   Unfortunately, the company decided they would offer AWA's to the maintenance workers, supervisors and people such as Quality Assurance officers.

AMIEU TAKES ACTION

 

On Friday 12 September 2007 AMIEU members employed at the Australian Country Choice plant at Cannon Hill in Brisbane held a four hour stop work meeting to discuss further industrial action.  The Union has been bargaining in good faith with management for more than six months and we are no closer to achieving a reasonable collective agreement.  As their previous Union Collective Agreement expired at the end of August the membership is concerned that if an agreement is not reached soon, the employer may apply to cancel their current agreement and introduce AWA's.
