Your pay – Your say web chat

As members would be aware, on 6 May, the Court of Appeal ruled in favour of the Baird Government’s position that increases in superannuation are to be included under its wage cap.

This means members employed under the Public Sector Salaries and related awards will, under the 2013 wage case, receive no more than the 2.27% that has been already paid.

This equates to the 2.5% available under the Government’s wages policy discounted by the rise in the superannuation guarantee levy.

The decision could result in members losing out on thousands of dollars of lost wages over the coming years if the superannuation guarantee contribution rises.

We are seeking the opinion of members in relation to an offer received last week from the State Government which proposes a 2.27% increase in salaries in relation to our 2014 pay claim

The rise would be effective from July 2014.

However, this offer was made on the condition that we do not challenge the Court of Appeal decision in the High Court.

To ascertain the thoughts of members, the PSA is holding a web chat titled Your pay – Your say.

It is being held from 12 noon to 2pm on Thursday 22 May 2014.
