NUW-AMSRO Wage Rates 2018

Please find below the updated Industry Agreement wage rates and allowances for 1 January 2018.

They have increased 2% since January 2017.

Please note that the Market Research Interviewer rate was increased in July 2017 (along with Employee on Commencement, Support Employee and Support Employee >1) because the NES statutory minimum rates overtook the Agreement rates.  The latest increase for all four classifications is therefore less than 2% – as the July 2017 increase will be absorbed by the January 2018 increases.
