Almost 3 million workers set to receive a 5.75% pay rise

The Fair Work Commission announced that Modern Award Rates will increase by 5.75% and the National Minimum Wage will increase by 8.6% on July 1, 2023.

Australian Services Union members have campaigned for a meaningful pay rise through the Award Wage Review, and we won!

The announcement by the Fair Work Commission is a clear example that when we stand together to campaign for better pay and conditions we can win.

ASU members should be proud for campaigning and winning this pay rise!

What you need to know:
  • Workers covered by Modern awards are set to receive a pay rise of 5.75% as of 1 July 2023
  • The lowest paid workers covered by the National Minimum Wage will receive a pay rise of 8.6% as of July 1, 2023.
  • If you are employed on an enterprise bargaining agreement, you won’t receive a pay increase unless your base rate of pay falls below the minimum award rate for your classification. This is your rate of pay without separate amounts like shift rates or overtime.

Our work continues – we need to ensure that employers pass on this wage increase to their workers on 1 July.

Our union will be working with our members to ensure everyone is paid what they are owed.
