Members are advised that new wage rates are applicable for employees employed under the General Retail Industry Award as from the first full pay period after 1 July 2018.
The new rates are now available by clicking here. You will need your member login to access the rates. Please call 1800 888 479 option 3 if you need your login and/or password.
This year, the Sunday penalty rate has been reduced to 80% for full time and part time staff and 85% for casual staff, with further decreases to be implemented in the following financial years.
Please be aware that the Fair Work Ombudsman is yet to release the wage rates calculations which may result in some rounding differences. If there is any inconsistency or any changes to the rates, we will re-issue the wage table and advise all members accordingly.
Members who have enterprise agreements are advised that they will need to ensure that their base wage rate and the classifications are not lower than the rates specified in the Award.
Note for WA members who are not companies and operate their businesses as sole traders, partnerships or some trusts, you will be covered by the WA State Award. We will publish the WA State Award rates very shortly.
For further information, please contact MGA on 1800 888 479 or 03 9824 4111 option 1.
