Wage Rates – 1 July 2022

ADIA is currently finalising details for the UWU and ADIA Market & Social Research Industry Agreement 2022-2026 but have agreed that the new wage rates would take effect on the first pay period after 1 July 2022.

In agreement with the Union, all minimum wage rates in the enterprise agreement are fixed at a minimum of 2% above the corresponding pay rates for Market and Social Research employees under the National Employment Standards (NES). 

As most members would be aware, the Fair Work Commission awarded increases to the minimum wage and Modern Award rates ranging from 4.6% to 5.2%, largely due to the high level of inflation we are currently experiencing. The new enterprise agreement rates are adjusted to reflect that increase and follow below.

These rates apply from the first full pay period after 1 July 2022.

The enterprise agreement increases take effect the first pay period on or after 1 July but because the 4.6% award increases operate from 1 July, we recommend the new agreement rates (also incorporating the award increases) be paid from 1 July 2022 as well.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE MINIMUM STATUTORY SUPERANNUATION CONTRIBUTION WILL INCREASE FROM 10 to 10.5% ON 1 JULY 2022.

On Sunday between 9.00 pm and midnight$8.27   

The new overtime rate is the relevant rate in the wages table above plus $7.59 per hour.

The new travel allowance – kilometre rate – is as per the Modern Award which is 0.91 cents.
