CPSU membership gets results: $17k win for Radio member

Earlier this year the CPSU was contacted by a Radio member asking us to check their estimated redundancy figures. Upon closer inspection the CPSU identified that the ABC had engaged this employee on multiple temporary transfer and salary packaging arrangements – most of which had not been thoroughly explained to the employee at the time. When the CPSU brought these issues to the attention of the relevant ABC management, the initial response was to refute that errors had been made. However with help from the CPSU, the member pursued it further and the ABC agreed to pay them an additional $17,000.
