An update on Wages 2013

27-Sep-2013

Revised salary rates and allowances for staff specialists, clinical academics, career medical officers and medical officers – which include a 2.27% increase – have been published by the Ministry.  These have been uploaded onto the ASMOF website.

ASMOF continues to seek a definitive schedule from the Ministry and HealthShare as to when our members can expect the 2.27% increase to be applied.

Background
As previously reported, the NSW Government is now seeking to have the Industrial Relations Commission of NSW (‘IRC’) arbitrate on its claimed economic and ‘incapacity to pay’ arguments.  Whilst the hearing dates had been originally intended to be held on 30 September and 1 October, these dates have now ‘slipped’ to 12 and 13 November 2013.

Public sector unions and Unions NSW are currently working to coordinate resources to ensure the best possible evidence and representation occurs for all public sector workers in those proceedings.
