Baiada Poultry Closes Laverton North Factory, Axes 100 Jobs
Oct 18 16
Baiada is closing its Laverton North factory in Melbourne's west, with the loss of more than 100 jobs. Sixteen chicken growers, who supply birds for Baiada's Steggles and Lilydale Free Range Chicken brands, will also lose their contracts when the processing plant shuts in March 2017. The company said all employee and contractual obligations would be honoured and it would try to help staff find new work, and growers new markets. Market conditions required Baiada to consolidate national processing operations meaning company could no longer viably operate the Laverton processing facility in the medium to long term. Baiada will continue to use the Laverton North plant as a distribution hub for chickens processed interstate.
Baiada to Pay $500,000 to Contractors
Oct 26 15
Baiada will pay $500,000 towards compensating the underpayment of workers following exposure of widespread unlawful practices by contractors at its worksites. Under an agreement reached with the Fair Work Ombudsman, Baiada will assume limited responsibility for the underpayment of contract labor employees engaged in its supply chain, even though it is not their direct employer. Baiada has agreed to set aside $500,000 to reimburse any current or former workers found to have been underpaid from January 1, 2015. Any funds remaining after May 31 next year will be distributed to charities. But the agreement does not apply to underpayments that occurred before 2015. The enforceable undertaking follows a scathing report by the Fair Work Ombudsman in June that found staff were underpaid, worked extremely long hours, and paid high rents for overcrowded, unsafe accommodation. Workers were paid as little as $11.50 an hour for shifts up to 19 hours a day. Workers said they would not get any work unless they rented accommodation from the labor hire contractor, and rent was allegedly unlawfully deducted from their pay. One property, found to be sleeping 21 people, was bought in March 2012 for $370,000 as rental accommodation. Based on 20 people paying $100 a week each, it has a potential rental income of more than $100,000 a year. Many of the workers were 417 working-holiday visa-holders recruited through Chinese newspapers, Facebook and Taiwanese backpacker websites. Baiada refused permission for Fair Work inspectors working on the inquiry to have access to the factory floor at its worksites, denying them an opportunity to observe work practices, as well as talk to employees about conditions, policies and procedures. It also failed to provide the inquiry with any ‘significant or meaningful’ documentation on the nature and terms of its labor contract arrangements. However, the company, which was severely embarrassed by the publicity given to the findings, has now agreed to work with the ombudsman. Baiada will have to ensure that contractors are independently audited, with audit results to be provided to the ombudsman and published. Workers will carry photo identification cards that name their direct employer, with employee wages verified by a third party. A dedicated hotline will be set up for employees to make a complaint if they believe they have been underpaid. Contact details of all labor-supply contractors will be provided to the Fair Work Ombudsman, including copies of passports of company directors.
