CDF message - variation to the 2014 ADF Workplace Remuneration Arrangement
4 March 2015
The Minister for Defence announced today that the Government has adjusted the framework for the 2014 ADF Workplace Remuneration Arrangement (2014 WRA) to include provision for ADF personnel to receive a pay increase.
This change enables me to return to the Defence Force Remuneration Tribunal (DFRT) to seek an increase from 1.5 percent to 2 percent per year for the residual life of the arrangement.
I said last year that I would continue to monitor and discuss ADF remuneration arrangements with the Government and return to the DFRT if there was provision in the WRA framework to do so.
I am now aiming to have a submission to the DFRT at the earliest opportunity.
I will advise ADF members as the submission progresses.
