It pays to be a CPSU member
6700 reasons to check your payslip

When a CPSU member and shift worker noticed an unusual payment on her payslip she wasn’t sure if it was an overpayment or if she was had underpaid in the past.

After her attempts to follow up the discrepancy with her Department’s payroll team received no response, she got in touch with the CPSU Member Service Centre who stepped in and discovered that the member had been underpaid shift penalties for ten years.

The CPSU wrote to the Department and ensured the member promptly received a back payment of over $6,700 in shift penalties owed.
