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
Today's decision is a win for all union members.
Let your colleagues know about this union win, and ask them to join today!
Last year we recovered over $3.5 million in unpaid wages for ASU members. The best way to ensure you're being paid correctly at work is to be a union member.
If you're on an Enterprise Agreement you cannot be paid lower than these new rates from July.
