Meal allowance

Pizza and garlic bread - no substitute for a mealie

In the latest from the bizarro files, some retail area managers have decided to rewrite EBA9 and replace meal allowances with pizzas from whoever has the best coupons that week.

This has led to members being short changed a meal allowance in exchange for a cheap Tuesday special!

Not on.

Slapping  a couple of slices of $5 pizzas on a paper plate does not relieve Australia Post of their obligation to pay you a meal allowance. And no, Mr Area Manager, adding a side of garlic bread doesn’t make it any better.

Members working at least one hour of continuous overtime are entitled to be paid a meal allowance — no ifs, no buts.

If you’ve recently worked overtime and been short changed your meal allowance, contact your State Branch Official for immediate assistance and recovery of the wages you are entitled to.
