HSUWA Members have fought and won an underpayment case about the rate of the Motor Vehicle Allowance applied by their employer, Brightwater.
Members alerted the Union that the Allowance had not changed. A review by the union found the employer had not applied the correct yearly increases to the Allowance. The employer was notified and completed their own internal audit. This led to a rectification payment to Members – which was a significant sum for many.
Congratulations to the Members who joined together and spoke up. This is a good reminder to read your Union Agreement and make sure you are getting paid correctly.
