The Union has agreed with the Employer the remuneration changes to apply from 1 July 2017.

The increases are based on the Market Movement Data and the overtime rates increased as per the Heads of Agreement (reduction in short term absences).

The overtime rates have two further increases – in 2018 and 2019 – dependant on short term absence figures. The full offer of the employer is attached.

However key elements of the increase included:

  • An increase of 2.45% for Firefighters from 1 July
  • An increase of 2.77% for Officers from 1 July
  • An increase of 2.61% for Allowances from 1 July.
  • An increase in overtime rates to 1.35 times the standard hourly rate for all overtime except that worked as a Public Holiday (continues at 1.5 times).

The new rates will be effective from 1 July however the Employer has advised that they expect to be able to pay the increased rates for the payday 30 August 2017 and back pay would be paid the following payday. This is unfortunate however it reflects the commencement of FENZ on 1 July and the additional Payroll complications.

The Collective Agreement expires next year but the Employer has committed to continue the Market Movement basis of increasing pay.
