Stand Down update from Menzies

Posted by Megan Denny on March 30, 2020

Union representatives met with Menzies management on 26 March 2020 to discuss the stand down of employees. Discussion focused on employee’s access to leave during the shutdown and the allocation of work. We have asked that employees be given the opportunity to opt out from work during the stand down. This will help some members plan for the future, and make more work available for those who do want to work. For those who want to work, we’ve agreed with management that work must be allocated to the people with the right skills in the most transparent and fair way possible. They are considering the best way to do this.
