The Fair Work Commission has awarded wage increases of 13.5% over three years with the first 4.5% backdated to 1 October last year. This equates to a 14.2% compounded increase in salaries over the life of the Workplace Determination or 4.7% p.a.
Originally the Government were offering 2.5% p.a.
The previous Parks Agreement expired 31 May 2011.
Fair Work backdated the first 4.5% pay increase to 1 October 2012, and significant backpay for all staff will compensate for the delay.
