When the cleaning contractor at their school changed, Sonam and Damcho’s former employer refused to pay out their annual leave.
The boss had incorrectly classified them as casuals. As union members, Sonam and Damcho knew this wasn’t right.
Sonam and Damcho took on their former boss with United Voice by their side.

Having good entitlements - and importantly having them respected and available to you - is integral in yours being a job you can count on.
