2.5 per cent win in major pay case
On 8 April, the President of the Industrial Relations Commission agreed to make the Public Sector Salaries 2015 Award.
A 2.5% increase under that award is effective from the first full pay period on or after 1 July 2015.
The award will expire on 30 June 2016.
It was the first time since 2008 that an award application for the increase was made by consent of both the PSA and the Government.
This increase has been agreed to without trading away any existing conditions.
The PSA surveyed affected members to seek their view on the 2.5% offer under the banner of Your Pay Your Say.
More than 95% of respondents voted YES to accept the 2.5% increase.
The PSA now has 12 months to plan our future wages strategy.
