The Fair Work Commission’s (FWC) 2020 wage rise of 1.75% is scheduled to commence from the first full pay period on or after November 1. This includes businesses covered by the Meat Industry Award 2020. AMIC will upload the new wage sheet reflecting these changes to the member portal in early October.

Please note that the meal allowance rate for overtime is not yet included. We are awaiting advice from the FWC as to the revised amount and once confirmed will amend the wage sheet immediately.
