Minimum wages increased by 3.5% as a result of the Annual Wage Review

Public news

Members are being reminded of our recent communication advising of the 3.5% increase to minimum award wages as a result of the 2018 Annual Wage Review decision.

The revised wage schedules are operative from the first full pay period commenced on or after 1 July this year.

The MTA has updated the wage schedules for the Vehicle Manufacturing Repair Services and Retail (VMRSR) Award 2010 and the Clerks – Private Sector Award 2010 to reflect the wage increase.

As in previous wage review decisions, employers paying sufficiently above award wage rates have the ability to absorb the increase if they so choose.
