As mentioned in the ASU Newsletter to members dated 15 June 2018, Michael Rizzo of the ASU National Office, met again with NCR Managers on Friday 6 July in Melbourne to discuss the status of the redundancies post the Expression of Interest (EOI) closing date on the 29 June 2018.
The ASU was informed that NCR is seeking around 21 redundancies, 7 of which employees have requested on a voluntary basis. Now in the week of the 9 July to 16 July, NCR will be personally notifying most employees that they have been granted a voluntary redundancy or that they will be made compulsorily redundant.
So far NCR has been meeting its obligations under the Consultation provisions of the eba by calling for voluntary redundancies first and consulting with both the ASU and employees. The ASU also asked the company on the 6 July meeting whether there was scope for re-deployment for some employees who did not want to leave. The company said that given the circumstances the chances of successful re-deployment were very thin.
If members during this process feel that they have not been treated properly or have some issue to discuss they need to contact the relevant ASU official below.
Meanwhile, Michael Rizzo of the ASU has scheduled another meeting with NCR in Melbourne on the 30 July to see if there are any outstanding matters at that point.
