Caltex Enterprise Agreement

September 13th, 2021 9:25 pm

Caltex terminated agreements with 19 franchisees at 43 sites for underpayment of employee fees and other serious workplace violations. Registered agreements are valid until terminated or issued. If a job has a registered agreement, the bonus does not apply. But this new agreement is unique in that it replaces 27 expired Domino agreements and brings them together into one, making our union much easier and easier to achieve better wages and working conditions for all Domino workers in the future. The Fair Work Commission can also help employers and workers negotiate with their New Approaches program. Find out more about the new approaches on the Fair Work Commission website. . . . A year later, the Fair Work Ombudsman (FWO) found that Caltex had systemic violations at 25 franchises.

In February, they spent more than US$270 million to buy back shares to give back more than 400 franchises to the company by next year. The discovery of significant subpayments and compliance omissions by Caltex franchisors comes at a time when the Turnbull government has laws before the federal Parliament to extend liability for intentional and serious underpayments to franchisors and holding companies and increase penalties for non-compliance by 10X (up to $540,000) as a result of 7 Eleven`s problems, Pizza Hut and other franchise chains. Few things are more difficult than dealing with a serious misconduct complaint. With AHRI`s short course “Investigating Misconduct in the Workplace”, you develop the practical skills to make critical decisions about staff. . “Caltex will attempt to recover the costs of its fund from franchisees responsible for underpaying their employees` fees,” says Caltex. .

If franchisees are “removed” from the Caltex network, the company will also invite employees to come forward if they think they have been underpaid.
