Up to 14 Teacher Aides working at Chinchilla State School have won back-pay for non-payment of rest pauses.
For a staggering six years the Teacher Aides were denied pay they were entitled to for the 20-minute daily rest pause. The total payment was in excess of $80,000.
The win was driven by a delegate who followed a clear process starting with addressing the issue at the school level before moving it to a regional level with the support of her United Voice Organiser.
