The Fair Work Commission announced in June that wages for all employees on award wages will increase by 3.5% in July.

Despite Tasmania’s increasing economic circumstances, Hair and Beauty Tasmania are disappointed that the rise is as much as it is.

It seems that the Commissioner has been swayed by the voices saying that there is no or extremely low wages growth nationally however all people on award wages get regular wage rises and for the second consecutive year this is over 3%.

Hair & Beauty Tasmania will send the revised rates and conditions to all financial members in the last week of June.
