TERMS AND CONDITIONS – DIRECT DEBIT SERVICE AGREEMENT

Why an Agreement?

Through the Direct Debit (DDR) you are allowing us to debit your Bank/Credit Union/Building Society account fortnightly.  This also allows you to vary the amount of withdrawal from time to time in accordance with the rates of contribution as per the registered rules of the Communications, Electrical, Plumbing Union.

What if the CWU wants to change this agreement?

We will notify you at least 14 days before making any changes to this agreement.

If you want to change your Direct Debit or make an enquiry?

Please contact the CWU office (07) 3255 0440 or e-mail: comms@cwuqld.asn.au, if you wish to:

–  Delay or change your Direct Debit;

–  Cancel the DDR;

–  Dispute a debit that has been made from your bank account.

Public Holidays

We will always try to debit your account as per your instructions, except when the due date falls on a public holiday.  In this case we will debit your account on the previous working day.

Make sure you have enough money in your account

You should make sure that you always have enough cleared funds in your account for us to debit.  If your Direct Debit returns, a letter will be sent to you asking if your circumstances have changed and a quarterly account will be issued if we are not notified.

Confidential

All customer records and account details will be kept private and confidential to be disclosed only at the request of the Customer or Financial Institution in connection with a claim made to an alleged incorrect or wrongful debit.
