The increases to award minimum wages in 10 awards in the aviation, tourism and hospitality sectors start from the first pay period on or after 1 October 2022.

How the changes work

Most employees are covered by an award. Awards are legal documents that set the minimum pay rates and conditions of employment.

Adult minimum award wages have increased by 4.6%, which is subject to a minimum increase for award classifications of $40 per week and based on a 38-hour week for a full-time employee.

Other award wages, including junior, apprentice and supported wages that are based on adult minimum wages, get a proportionate increase.

This means minimum award wages:

  • above $869.60 per week get a 4.6% increase
  • below $869.60 per week get a $40 increase.

National Training Wage increase

Wage increases for trainees under the National Training Wage have come into effect on the same date as award minimum wage increases. This includes awards that refer to and incorporate the terms under Schedule E of the Miscellaneous Award, which has an operative date of 1 July 2022.

Registered agreements

If you’re covered by a registered agreement, your base rate can’t be less than the relevant award. An increase to the minimum rate paid may apply.
