Pay up workers entitlements of closed carpet factory – Union
Sep '10
Union leaders from Tasmania are shortly to convene a meet with management of Tascot Carpet, to ensure that the administration is paying wages and other receivables of the workers.

Tascot Carpet went in to voluntary administration a few days back, which has put at stake, future of around 150 workers employed in the unit.

Textile Clothing and Footwear Union representative Mark Edwards stated that, if the unit shuts down it would be a real trouble for the workers to find employment elsewhere.

The Federal Government is extending support for retraining of workers, and they would be acquainting the workers as to how, where and when can they enrol for such retraining, Edwards said.

He said that, what matters to them the most is the interests of their members, and if Tascot administration is deliberating to close down the unit, they want to ensure that the company pays out entitlements of the workers, prior to closure.

The workers should get all the benefits in respect of leave accrued in course of continuous service, retrenchment allowance and other accumulated leaves too should be encashed, he said.
