Unions to seek $70m back pay

Central Queensland News - - NEWS -

UNIONS will seek up to $70 mil­lion in back pay for ap­pren­tices and trainees in Queens­land af­ter the Fed­eral Court cleared the way for claims by thou­sands of work­ers wrongly paid less than $9 an hour. The Fair Work Com­mis­sion had twice ruled that ap­pren­tices in Queens­land should have been paid un­der fed­eral awards rather than low-pay­ing state awards.
