National Minimum Wage increase

The Fair Work Commission today handed down a Decision increasing the National Minimum Wage by 3.5% with effect from the beginning of the first pay period commencing on or after 1 July 2018.

This means the NMW will increase by $24.30 per week or $0.64 per hour to $719.20 and $18.93 respectively. Award wage rates will also be increased by 3.5%.

Provisional new wage sheets will be published on the Primary Employers Queensland website prior to 1 July 2018. We will inform members via the Weekly Update once they are posted.
