A trade union (or labor union) is an organization of workers who have come together to achieve common goals such as protecting the integrity of its trade, improving safety standards, achieving higher pay and benefits such as health care and retirement, increasing the number of employees an employer assigns to complete the work, and better working conditions. The trade union, through its leadership, bargains with the employer on behalf of union members (rank and file members) and negotiates labor contracts (collective bargaining) with employers. The most common purpose of these associations or unions is "maintaining or improving the conditions of their employment". This may include the negotiation of wages, work rules, complaint procedures, rules governing hiring, firing, and promotion of workers, benefits, workplace safety and policies.
To earn Velocity Frequent Flyer Points on purchases made with participating partners with the Velocity Daily Program, you must (1) enrol an eligible Australian Visa card in accordance with the instructions on the Velocity Daily website in the Velocity Daily Program; (2) use your enrolled Visa card to pay for your purchase at participating partners in store; and (3) select CREDIT or the payWave function when you complete your purchase in store (Eligible Transaction). Purchases made using an eligible card before your card is activated or purchases made using CHEQUE or SAVINGS will not earn Velocity Frequent Flyer Points. An eligible Australian Visa card is an active Visa Debit, Credit or Pre-paid card which has been issued in Australia. Visa-branded Gift cards or cards that have expired, have been cancelled or are otherwise invalid, are excluded from this program. You can enrol a maximum of five eligible cards. If a transaction is refunded or reversed within 30 days of the purchase, you will not earn Points on that transaction. If a transaction is partially refunded or reversed within 30 days of the date of the purchase, you will only receive Velocity Points for the portion of the transaction not refunded or reversed. Velocity Frequent Flyer Points will be allocated to your account on Eligible Transactions approximately 40 days after the date of purchase. The Points you have earned and are displayed as available may take up to 40 days to appear in your Velocity Frequent Flyer My Account. To find out how many points you will earn on eligible purchases, see our participating partners for more details. The Velocity Daily trial will commence on 3 April 2018 and is expected to continue until 30 June 2018. The trial period may be extended, delayed or suspended by us at any time without further notice to you.
If you receive a Fostering Allowance please don’t include this as income on the Income for Benefits screen as it is ignored when calculating your entitlement to benefits. On the Income for Tax Credits screen, only include the amount of your Fostering Allowance that is taxable.

Lithium Australia has hit a major milestone with the successful production of lithium ion battery cathode powders and lithium ion batteries using lithium phosphate produced directly from mine waste courtesy of its proprietary “SiLeach” process. The company managed to bypass the need to produce high-purity lithium hydroxide or carbonate, which could significantly reduce the cost of battery manufacturing.

An EI benefit claimant goes on an ocean cruise for a month and arranges for a friend to conceal their absence by signing and returning two EI claimant reports. As a result, the claimant illegally received $350 in benefits for each of the four weeks of the cruise. After investigation, we find that this was the first time the claimant and the friend had misused the EI system. As well, we find that they both knew that what they did was illegal but they did it anyway.
The Benefits Calculator does not currently calculate benefit entitlement for students, although we are aiming for this to be included in the future. This is because special rules apply and the results provided will not be accurate if you continue with the calculation. This includes students who are full time or part time, or in further, higher, advanced or non advanced education.
