New Retained Award: 3% wage rise from 1 October

October 9, 2001

A 3% wage increase for all retained members took effect on and from 1 October, although the new 2001 Award which provides this increase (and a further 9% over the next 18 months) is yet to be finalised. Whilst the Union and the Department remain in negotiations over the Award’s current stand-by provisions and our Union’s claim for the introduction of retained penalty rates, both parties remain confident that the 2001 Award will be finalised and formally in operation before the end of this month.
