The Fair Work Commission's foreshadowed Wage and Allowance Determinations for the Vehicle Repair, Service and Retail Award 2020 was released Friday 29 January 2021 and became effective as of Monday 1 February 2021 and will need to be applied in the next full pay period.
The fully updated Vehicle, Repair, Service and Retail Award 2020 Wage Guide is available via the MTA Members Portal.
Importantly, the Determination includes a wage increase of 1.75% and most of the allowances you were paying have increased. Please make sure you read the new wages and allowances carefully and make any increases as necessary.
Finally, it is important to ensure you are currently paying your apprentices accurately in accordance with the current minimum rates. Please remember that apprentice rates and allowances also increased in the revised award rates and you will need to comply with these accordingly.
