Security officers who were First Aid qualified were not receiving their allowance.
The First Aid Allowance recognises the valuable role these officers play in making their workplaces safer.
As union members, the security guards took their employer to the Fair Work Commission, arguing that this was a case of wage theft.
The Fair Work Commissioner found in favour of the union security officers and the group received $13,000 in back pay.
This is a great win which reasserts safe workplaces and secure pay are fundamental to a job you can count on.
