When Peter, a guard working at Stud Park Shopping Centre, realised he had been underpaid he contacted his employer.
He hadn’t been paid the full rate for sundays, night shift and overtime.
The company did some dodgy calculations and only offered him back pay worth a lot less than what he was owed.
Peter knew something wasn’t quite right. Luckily, he was a member of United Voice.
He got in contact with his union, and found he had been classified incorrectly. The correct calculations showed he was owed over $40,000.
Your union sent the employer a letter of demand and soon the guard was back paid his full amount! Well done Peter!
If you haven't yet joined your union - do it now! Make sure you're getting paid what you deserve!
