Breaking! Union won pay rise

In a huge union win, today we have secured an Award Wage increase of 4.6% in the Fair Work Commission's Annual Wage Review.

This 4.6% increase applies to all workers on the SCHADS Award from 1 July 2022. Award-free employees on the minimum wage will receive a 5.2% increase.

We told the Fair Work Commission that workers deserve a fair pay rise that keeps up with cost of living, and they listened.

How much more will I be paid?

For community and disability workers, you'll be $50 better off per week.

From 1st July:

Full time workers will be at least $50.89 per week better off

Part time workers will get at least $1.33 more per hour

Casuals will get at least $1.67 more per hour
