The Aged Care Work Value Decision: What does it mean for you?22 December 2022
On 4 November 2022 the Fair Work Commission (FWC) handed down its decision on the ANMF and HSU’s applications to increase award wages for all employees working in residential aged care and home aged care.
The unions sought an increase of 25% for all classifications. The FWC decided to grant an interim increase of 15% for direct care workers.
The FWC agreed that for direct care workers in the aged care sector, the existing minimum wage rates do not properly compensate employees for the value of the work performed. They found that wages should increase for ‘work value’ reasons.
