My staff and I are extremely unhappy about having to belong

Customer Question

My staff and I are extremely unhappy about having to belong to the Furniture Bargaining Council as there are always shortfalls on the holiday cheques and we still haven't had the correct pension/provident statements for 2011/12. We did get statements in March, which were 3 months late, and there were huge mistakes reflected.
my staff want their pensions with Old Mutual and I will keep their holiday/leave pay in a separate account and pay it out in the first week of December. There is nobody to regulate the Furniture Bargaining Council and as they have my staff's money, my staff are very dissatisfied with them. We do not want to belong to them anymore.
Can they be hired as sub-contractors but we follow the same principles we always have?
Thanks, Cynthia

I will wait for advice which I can use in my defense when we advise the FBC that we are resigning at the end of their financial year, which is the end of September.
