15% wage cut approved by Fair Work
CONTRACTOR successful in reducing EA wage rates by $6 an hour.
Tuesday 30 August 2016  

Fair Work Australia (FWA) has approved an application by a mining contractor to reduce the hourly wages of its employees by between 13 and 17 percent.

Monadelphous sought to have their current  2015 to 2017 Enterprise Agreement covering all Central Queensland regional employees (except Gladstone workshop) varied to accommodate the wage changes

Under the new wage rates, all employees will lose about $6 an hour which means a level 5 worker previously on about $40 an hour base rate will now earn a bit over $34. A level 1 worker will have their hourly rate cut from around $34 to $28, and a level 8 worker will see their hourly rate fall $6 from $44 to $38.

While the Australian Workers Union and the Australian Manufacturing Workers Union supplied written objections to the variation on the basis that it was a cut in wages, neither requested to be heard by FWA regarding the matter.

FWA Commissioner Hunt approved the new payment calculations.

"I am satisfied that each of the requirements relevant to this application for approval of a variation has been me,” he said.

“Of particular note, I am satisfied that the variations continue to satisfy the terms of Part 2-2 of the National Employment Standards of the Act, and the Better off Overall Test.”
