Back pay win for 7-11 workers


MELBOURNE — Eighty-eight workers from five 7-Eleven stores in the CBD will be reimbursed $112,000, and a sixth store has been instructed to credit 1000 hours of annual leave to workers who should have accrued the entitlement but didn't.

These findings follow a campaign of protests and media publicity organised by UNITE, a fast-food workers' union. Its campaign led to a series of random audits by the Fair Work inspectors.
