Wage Rates – 1 July 2024

The Fair Work Commission (FWC) has approved the UWU and ADIA Market & Social Research Industry Agreement 2023-2026.

Updated wage rates take effect on the first pay period after 1 July 2024.

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 an increase of 3.75% (announced June 2024) to the minimum wage and Modern Award rates, 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 2024.  Download the rates table here.
