On 30 May, the Fair Work Commission (FWC) awarded a 3 per cent increase to all modern Award wages, with wage-related allowances increasing proportionately. In addition, a number of Award expense-related allowances will also increase.

The increases take effect from the first full pay period commencing on or after 1 July 2019.

Updated Wage Bulletins reflecting these increases are now available for the Building and Construction General On-site Award 2010, the Joinery and Building Trades Award 2010 and the Clerks – Private Sector Award 2010.

In addition, updated Wage Bulletins for those holding the original version of the CFMEU EBA 2016-2018, the code compliant version of the CFMEU EBA 2016 – 2018 and the extant Industry EBA 2011-2015 are also now available, reflecting the adjustments to the Award-related allowances applicable under the Agreements.
