As Union members, we aren’t afraid of new challenges. After fixing an issue at work, our instincts say let’s start on the next improvement. This means we rarely pause to reflect on our achievements. During 2019, our Union recorded the money won for members through individual cases and collective campaigns.
- $1,093,853 was won for members through individual cases, for example, for members who were Unfairly Dismissed or Underpaid.
- $6,261,400 was won for members through collective campaigns, for members across a whole company or department who were Underpaid their Shift Allowances, Super or Sick Leave.
That’s over $7.35 Million back into member’s pockets throughout the year!
Where to in 2020?
This year, we already have our sights set on winning collective campaigns worth a total of $2,876,812, for members across companies who we say are underpaid their FIFO Allowance, Super, Shift Allowance, Long Service Leave, or Sick Leave. We’re also working hard to assist individual members who contact our office.
In 2019, we started off by first meeting with members and talking together across our workplaces about what is important to you. This year, let’s do the same.
