Wage underpayments dating from as far back as July 2010 have been reclaimed by union members in Hotels.
Leaders Ashok Sharma and Alex Petrevsky used the Issue Resolution Procedure – a win from a previous Enterprise Agreement campaign – to find out why staff hadn’t been paid.
Ashok said: "Anyone who has worked night shifts for a year will receive thousands of dollars in back pay, while Bell Attendants are looking at hundreds of dollars at least – just in time for Christmas.
"Everyone in Crown Promenade and Crown Metropol is really happy about this big win! It’s a great reminder about the power of our union and why it’s so important that everyone is a member."
