3.5% pay rise as of 1 July 2018

3.5 per cent pay rise as of 1 July 2018 – June 2018 (PDF version)

HWNS has confirmed members can expect to receive a 3.5 per cent pay rise on 1 July 2018. This is a full one per cent above the wage cap of the NSW Government.

Why are you getting this pay rise you might ask?

The Fair Work Commission on 1 June 2018 as part of the Annual Wage Review, made a determination that copied state instruments, such as the ones which apply to your conditions, were to be included in the decisions of the annual wage review. Therefore, the 3.5 per cent pay rise determined by the Fair Work Commission would apply. This comes after an application from the CPSU to have NSW Government Sector copied state instruments included in the Annual Wage Review.

This is great news from the HWNS management that they will adhere to the Fair Work Commissions decision for a 3.5 per cent pay raise for copied state instruments.
