Further information

Members who are subscribed to ‘2010’ modern awards online will be alerted when updated existing pay and allowance summaries are available. The new ‘2020’ modern awards now have summaries of pay rates and allowances in the Schedules of these modern awards, therefore, new pay and allowances summaries will not be created moving forward for some modern awards. It is anticipated that the Commission will make copies of the updated ‘2020’ modern awards including the 1 November 2020 increases available on or a day before the effective date.
