Pay increase update - Public Service Association

Pay increase update

 The PSA was back before the Industrial Relations Commission today (Thursday) following yesterday’s rejection by State Parliament of the O’Farrell Government’s regulation.

With the regulation disallowed the PSA and other Public Sector unions asked for the Commission to now award the full 2.5%. The Government is still working out what to do next.

The Government asked the Commission for the matter to be stood over for a further two weeks so its representatives could get clear instructions.

The Government confirmed on the record that they would honour their commitment to back-pay the 2.27% increase and any other that flows on at the conclusion of this matter to the first full pay period on or after 1 July 2013.

Members who have retired, been made redundant or left the service on or after this date will also receive the increase and back pay.

The Government also supported the making of orders to enable payment of interim 2.27% increase won by the PSA.

The 2.27% rise should be paid in the next few weeks.

The process has been held up by the Government while they check the various pay rate schedules.

The matter is back before the Commission on the 6 September.
