The Fair Work Commission announced a 3.5% increase in pharmacy award minimum pay rates in today June 1st 2018.
The below increased pay rates will apply from 1st July 2018 onwards. Minimum Sunday penalty rates have decreased and public holiday rates were cut last year.
The below pay rates will continue to apply until 1st July 2018.
Professional Pharmacists Australia (PPA) President Geoff March welcomed the Fair Work Commission (FWC) national minimum wage review today as a step in the right direction for pharmacist pay. The FWC has not yet ruled on PPA’s recent case to raise Pharmacy Industry Award pay by an average of 30%.
Pharmacists don’t deserve their penalty rate cuts. We already saw public holiday rates cut last year and Sunday rates cut again this year. Sign the petition to demand Malcolm Turnbull reverse the penalty rate cuts.
