Announcing a win for TWU members at VARA today.
Due to the strength of TWU VARA members and TWU Delegates’ pressure and persistence, Virgin Australia Regional Airlines have agreed to rectify and back pay significant underpayments.
Underpayments were on salaries for personnel on certain grades, and on grooming allowances.
The company have told us that they are currently doing their calculations and we can expect an update in the coming weeks as to when members affected will be back payed.
Congratulations to all VARA members on your victory and on showing management you will stand together and do what it takes until you get an outcome.
