Changes to the General Retail Industry Award
Members are advised that new wage rates are applicable for casual employees employed under the General Retail Industry Award from 1 November 2018. These new rates are now available on our website at www.mga.asn.au or by clicking here. Please call 1800 888 479 option 3 if you need your login and/or password.
There will be phase-in reductions to the Sunday penalty rates for shift workers. The new rates will be down from 200% to 175% for full-time and part-time shift workers, and down from 225% to 200% for casual shift workers on 1 November 2018.
Please be aware that the Fair Work Ombudsman is yet to release the wage rates calculations which may result in some rounding differences. If there is any inconsistency or any changes to the rates, we will re-issue the wage table and advise all members accordingly.
