Get set for a 3.3% increase to base rates of pay
The Fair Work Commission has announced a 3.3% increase to minimum wages following its 2017 Annual Wage Review. The increase will apply to base rates of pay from the first full pay period starting on or after 1 July 2017. The new national minimum wage will be $694.90 per week or $18.29 per hour.
The wage rise will be applied across the board to both the Children's Services Award and the Educational Services (Teachers') Award and to allowances within those awards.
All ACAV Members will receive updated wage tables in the coming days.
