Annual Wage Increase of 3.3% effective July 1st 2017

Fair Work Commission has handed down the 2017 wages decision on 6th June. FWC decided to increase the minimum adult rates of pay in each of the Modern Awards by 3.3% per week - including the Meat Industry Award 2010.

The operative date for the increase is the first full pay period to commence on or after 1 July 2017.

These wage sheets apply to all AMIC members except for sole trader/partnerships in Western Australia. Those rates will be announced later this month.
