Introduction and Overview

1. On 15 June 2022, the Fair Work Commission handed down its decision in the Annual Wage Review 2021-22.

2. Following from this, the FWC has now published draft determinations giving effect to the Panel’s decision and has invited feedback on those draft determinations. 

3. The ACTU submits that those draft determinations should be amended as necessary to ensure that all adult rates in modern awards (including those applicable to apprentices and to trainees) increase by $40 per week.
