Members at VicTrack who are based at North Dynon recently raised an issue of not being paid a meal allowance for working less than 2 hours overtime.
Members were informed that they were not entitled to the allowance as they would have to work over 2 hours overtime in order to be eligible. As members shifts were now 10 hours, 8 hours rostered and 2 overtime they also believed this to be the case, but upon further investigation by members and the RTBU it was found that since a recent roster change in February 2019 members were, in fact, working 7.36 hours a shift.
As a result of the change, members were entitled to the allowance. The RTBU contacted VicTrack and an internal audit was conducted. I am pleased to report the members will be back paid their allowances back to when the rosters were introduced. A great result for members at North Dynon.
