UNION officials have committed to fighting for the 130 employees affected by the collapse of El Zorro Transport.
The company advised the Rail Tram and Bus Union (RTBU) on Tuesday that employees were being informed they had lost their jobs.
El Zorro is believed to have up to 26 employees in Junee.
RTBU NSW locomotive division secretary Bob Hayden said some members had not received wages in two weeks and were owed superannuation.
“We don’t believe they’ve paid all of their (employee’s) super entitlements,” he said.
Mr Hayden said the latest information received from the company was that they were waiting for an outstanding contract to be paid so they could pay entitlements.
However, last week one of El Zorro’s creditors lodged an application to wind the company up.
“It was only last week that we heard they couldn’t pay wages,” Mr Hayden said.
Attempting to get the full details on how much was owed to their members, the RTBU applied through Fair Work Australia for a breach in the enterprise agreement for non-payment of wages and super entitlements.
Mr Hayden said the union had been told El Zorro would advise employees how much of their entitlements were still owed in the next seven days and provide a separation certificate.
However, he said without a separation certificate, employees who had not been paid weren’t able to claim Centrelink benefits.
“We will do whatever we need to do to protect their entitlements and get members jobs with other rail operators,” Mr Hayden said.
