Abattoir workers get entitlements

NEARLY $1 million in entitlements has been paid to former South Grafton abattoir workers.

The Fair Work Ombudsman was granted an order by the Federal Court last month to secure $1.5 million from Stuart Ramsey, Brugold Pty Ltd and Ramsey Meats Pty Ltd in a trust account for the payment of the workers' entitlements.

Since last month, $985,000 has been released to the workers to meet their entitlements, including redundancy, annual leave and long-service leave entitlements.

The Fair Work Ombudsman is continuing to assess matters relating to the personal leave entitlements of workers who transferred to the Northern Meat Co-operative Meat Company in Casino.

The case went before the Federal Court yesterday and will reappear before the court on February 1, 2012.
