Multicultural NSW Members Win Back Pay

Multicultural NSW Members Win Back Pay

Members to receive back pay and correct rates of pay after PSA fights for fairness.

Multicultural NSW (MNSW) PSA union Delegates identified that the most recent pay increase won by the union had not been applied to the Crown Employees (Interpreters and Translators, Multicultural NSW) Award.

The Delegates got straight to work after the discovery. After confirming that members had in fact missed out on the pay rise, the PSA immediately raised this error with MNSW.

The correct rate of pay was established, and the union took the issue to NSW Public Service Industrial Relations.

“Thanks to the diligence and hard work of delegates and PSA industrial staff the Award is now updated with the correct rates and members paid back monies owed,” said Assistant General Secretary Troy Wright. “The backpay and corrected rate were reflected in the members’ pay the following week.

“This case illustrates that checking your pay advice, and keeping abreast of the PSA’s continuous fight for pay rises can pay off.”
