Even when you’ve been ripped off for years, you can still get what you're owed if you're in your union.
United Voice member Brian Linkhorn spent years with his former employer being paid under the award.
He didn’t even know it was wrong until he started being properly paid in a new job.
He took it to his union, United Voice, who took his former boss all the way to the Federal court when they refused to pay it.
Long story short - in court Brian was finally able to win back the money stolen from him.
In total, Brian was able to recover $4,283.95 in unpaid wages and unpaid annual leave.
Well done Brian!
You never know when you’ll need someone fighting on your behalf to win back what you’re owed.
