News article on the same matter.

Anyone been around long enough to remember the original MSS Security patrols being slapped down in the 90's for a similar patrols matter?

Second part of the article goes on to some other problems arising for Wilson Security in Victoria.

No idea sorry.

I do know that MSS Security did away with that silly 'Voluntary Overtime (VOT)' matter though. I never understood how the Union agreed with that over successive agreements.
It is now simply OT if it is anything above your normal rostered fortnightly hours, as it should be.

You once had to do your normal hours, then anything extra was VOT, only once you exceeded the VOT hours (around 20 hours from memory) only then would you get the OT rate.

It was ridiculous. So you could do a 76 hour fortnight, then do additional hours only for it not to be classed at OT but VOT. >:(

Then when you finally did become eligible for OT rates they wouldn't let you work any extras and would magically be able to cover the shifts by other means.

MSS NSW pay OT on a Sunday for people working a 4 x 4 roster. OT is paid on 2 Sundays mid cycle of the roster instead of at the end of the roster. Wilsons do a similar thing and I had heard that Wilsons were take to the Fair Work Commission over it.

Title: PAY RISE FOR MSS SECURITY WORKERS IN S.A.
Post by Bear on 22. Jun 2018 at 15:39
Hi All
Massive pay rise for MSS SECURITY OFFICERS working in South Australia's public sector ( Adelaide's Queen Elizabeth Hospital). 17% that's SEVENTEEN Percent increase in their pay. Well done to United Voice and their members for this fantastic result. Hopefully this will have some sort of flow on effect in other states. Join a Union and fight for your wages and conditions. That's the only way things will change. Or are you happy with the piss ant $10 a week tax cut for you???? And a $10,000 pay rise for a Politician. What a joke......

Do you guys think the positives still outweigh the negatives at this point?

OlinLes, I am a part time employee and I work 37 hours a week Mon-Thurs. If I am called into to work on any other day (Fri, Sat or Sun) I am paid OT. So yes the positives are better.
We need to be paid by the award and not let employers fiddle with it.
