1  Victoria / VIC Security Contractors A to M / Re: M.A. Security Group T/A M.A. Security Guards

From what I heard from other guards working for MA, they keep everything they do a secret. Many of them are under an ABN and on flat rates. Which does not come as a surprise considering how many accounts they are snatching up. One story I head was that one has been with them for a while and was not paid until 6 weeks later but no pay stub was given. Sure they can hide behind their EBA but they are only engaging in Sham contracting, how else are they able to beat their competitors in price?

I have been informed that M.A.Security Group is conducting sham contracting which is illegal. I encourage any visitors to this page and who are working for MA Security Group to evaluate their working conditions and see if in fact they are working in a sham contracted position by referring to this page: http://ausecurityworker.com/sham_contracting.html

If you believe you are in a sham contract refer to the Fair Work Ombudsman website: https://www.fairwork.gov.au/find-help-for/independent-contractors

MA Security Group have an approved Enterprise Bargaining Agreement: https://www.fwc.gov.au/documents/documents/agreements/fwa/ae423438.pdf

It is interesting to see the agreement that was supposedly passed the vote of workers before it was submitted to the Fair Work Commission. The Fair Work Commission found so many working conditions and pay in the original agreement that were below what was prescribed in Security Services Industry Award.

The company was required by the Fair Work Commission to give undertakings to amend the conditions in the original agreement as can be seen from the first 6 pages of the agreement. It is illegal for any company to present any Enterprise Bargaining Agreement without the FWC Decision letter and any undertakings the company was required to give.

If you have been furnished with an Enterprise Bargaining Agreement by this company check to see whether it contains the Decision and Undertakings pages.

If you believe that you are not being employed under the conditions prescribed by the Decision and Undertakings of the M.A. Security Services EBA then take your complaint to the Fair Work Ombudsman: https://www.fairwork.gov.au/contact-us

3  New South Wales / NSW Security Contractors N to Z / Southern Cross Group - Youngest Site Supervisors in The Country!

People of Southern Cross Group:

For me(Risk and Security Coordinator), Southern Cross Group is about the great people I work with every day and being appreciated by my team.

I joined the Security Industry at the age of 19. In 2014 I became second in command for a major retail organization in Sydney before eventually being promoted to the Site Risk & Security Supervisor role at the age of 23 - one of the youngest site supervisors in the country!

When I started working at the Museum as a supervisor, my challenge was to transform the culture and unite the team regardless of the differences between us. We have achieved this outcome and I am very proud of the entire team. The only way to do a great job in the security industry is to trust your colleagues and make sure they receive the right training. In doing so, you'll be confident that they can do a great job any time and in any situation.

At the end of the day, we all have the same cause at heart - to offer a safe environment to every single person at the Museum.

Remember, Safety is everybody’s responsibility!”- Zeeshan Khan, Risk and Security Coordinator, Southern Cross Group.

Do these scam contracts happen often in our industry?

The Hunter Valleys favourite dodgy operator (after BSMS) has gone into Administration, and as such has lost its biggest contract, the SNP patrols for NSW. Guards have been left unpaid for the last month, and unfortunately, Supperanuations for longer. Looks very likely like illegal phoenix activity, but this time SNP weren't having it.

Date of Notice:      31 August 2018

A warning to all to stay clear of the shonky dealings of John Murray and co. If you're at BSMS expect an influx of dodgy management as they jump ship.

And always, always, stay ontop of your Super. Some guards are claiming theirs have been unpaid for two years.. Check it!

OlinLes, I am a part time employee and I work 37 hours a week Mon-Thurs. If I am called into to work on any other day (Fri, Sat or Sun) I am paid OT. So yes the positives are better.
We need to be paid by the award and not let employers fiddle with it.

Do you guys think the positives still outweigh the negatives at this point?
