Marine cooks in ABF win back pay

After CPSU members won back payment for staff whose periods of Higher Duties performed had been incorrectly calculated, members in the Marine cooks were shocked to find that they were still missing five months of back pay. 

CPSU members raised this issue and we were been able to secure the Department’s commitment to back pay these members for the five months they were short changed - from the 1 July 2015 to the 8 December 2015.

The Department has confirmed this payment will be processed either in the pay cycle of 10 August or 24 August.

If you believe you are eligible for payment and do not receive your back pay by the pay cycle of 24 August please contact
