Some helpful tips for SFWU members

Observation by the Owl

Please read the note on the SFWU website regarding Union fees deductions below.

Important Note:

Union members are responsible for checking their fee deductions to ensure they are paying the correct rate.  Refunds will only be agreed to in extenuating circumstances and shall be granted for no more than a 12 month period.

If you as a union member make a mistake or have been over-charged you need to provide “extenuating circumstances” and a refund is only for 12 months.

Well, great to see the SWFU is a caring, sharing organisation.

I recommend that the SFWU should go through the last 10 years records on behalf of their members and identify all the errors and refund them asap. That is what a caring and sharing employer would do.

This is poor business on behalf of the Union – “if I was a member”

SFWU – it is your responsibility to check your members fees – not the members!

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
