What does this mean for me?

If you are on Award rates of pay as of July 1, 2019 your pay MUST be increased to bring it in line with the new minimum Award rate.

However, those on Enterprise Agreements and/or individual contracts are not affected by this increase unless their current pay is less than the new minimum award rate, or their agreement specifically provides for wage movement inclusive of minimum wage decisions.
