‘Cut the Cuts’ campaign convinces C&K to back down
Community support and the ongoing campaign by IEUA-QNT members has ensured that C&K (the Creche & Kindergarten Association) has finally agreed to “cut the cuts” and protect existing conditions for employees in C&K Branch Centres.
At the most recent negotiation meeting held on 24 February 2017, it was confirmed that the superannuation co-contribution scheme would be protected and remain available to all employees, both existing and new.
Members’ call for more time for Directors to do their job was also finally heard, with C&K now offering 10 hours per annum of release time for Directors available by application.
This news comes after earlier community support and member action resulted in C&K scrapping its proposed cuts to redundancy payments and employees’ vacation time.
