Every worker should get paid every dollar they are entitled to.

And at Central Highlands Water, ASU delegates are making sure that’s what happens.

A sharp-eyed delegate identified a maintenance allowance in the enterprise agreement that Central Highlands Water was not paying. There wasn’t even a way for workers who were entitled to the allowance to claim it.

After pressure from the union, Central Highlands Water investigated the allowance payment and confirmed that it had never been paid to workers who should have been receiving it for years.

Because of the ASU delegate’s attention to detail and determination that everyone at Central Highlands water is paid correctly, eligible workers will soon receive thousands of dollars on back pay.

If you are being underpaid for the work you do or are not receiving every workplace entitlement you should, get in touch with the ASU Member Contact Centre on 1300 855 570 or at info@asuvictas.com.au
