Mackay Regional Council Update – Administrative Pay Increase

Local Authorities April 20, 2021

The Services Union is acutely aware of how long the bargaining process is taking with Mackay Regional Council and our bargaining team are working tirelessly to deliver the wage increases and improvements to conditions that you deserve.

Mackay Regional Council (MRC) has announced it will be making an administrative pay increase to staff as follows:

  • $250 increase to base salary for all employees employed under the Stream B & Stream C Awards
  • Plus 1% increase for all employees
  • Both back paid to 1 July 2020.

The back pay appears to have been processed this week.

While The Services Union applauds MRC’s decision to apply an administrative increase it needs to be understood by our members that is not a final agreed negotiating outcome from the ongoing Certified Agreement negotiations. We will continue pursuing better wage increases at the bargaining table.

If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact your Workplace Delegates (Kate Cotter (Sarina), Ash-Lee Johnson, Kendel Russo, Vicki Booth, Wayne Amos (Gordon St Admin), Duncan Ross (Wellington St), Kath Evans, Shannon De Silva (Libraries), Charlie Ward (Paget), Mel Boxall (Paget) or Sharon Stephen (Mirani)) or your Union Organiser, Glenn Desmond.

Members of our Union know we are by your side to help you navigate the various options when it comes to bargaining. If you know someone who’s not a member, let them know they can get on board with us at:
