Equal Pay Rates July 2019

3% increase in minimum pay rates starts 1 July 2019!

Thanks to union members, the SCHADS Award minimum rates of pay go up by 3% from the first pay period in July. 

This is the first of two increases in our Award rates this year. The second will come in December. Both are thanks to the ASU campaign for Equal Pay that was won in 2012 and awarded increases of between 23 – 45% on our Award rates over 8 years.

Be sure to check your payslips in July – you cannot be paid lower than these new rates. Union members should call our Member Assistance Line on (02) 9310 4000 if you have any questions.
