Hotels union members win thousands of dollars in back pay

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."
