Pay rise delivered on time

May 2, 2012News

Contrary to rumours, the pay increase due on the 15th April 2012 was delivered on time without delay.

This pay rise comes despite the O’Farrell government’s unfair wage policy that caps any increase at 2.5 per cent unless employees can demonstrate cost offsets.

The paper work for this pay rise had to be approved by state Treasury as these cost offsets have to be in the bank before any money is released to fund the increases.

The next 3.25 per cent pay rise is due on 1st January 2013 and the union will be monitoring closely to ensure that all cost offset initiatives are met so the scheduled pay rise can go through on time.
