AIR Force members can look forward
to having more money in their pock-
ets for Christmas as a result of a pay
increase announced on October 28.
A 4 per cent increase, in pay
packets on November 24, will be fol-
lowed by a 2.5 per cent increase in
November 2012 and a further 2.5 per
cent in November 2014.
Seventeen salary-related allow-
ances will also increase in line with
the pay rises.
Flying Allowance for GPCAPT
and below will go up by $298 a
year while Service Allowance will
increase by $1080 by 2014.
While there was some opposition
to the new Workplace Remuneration
Arrangement (WRA), CDF GEN
David Hurley said there was a risk in
not proceeding with the pay case.
"My concern was that if we
delayed an application or if an ADF
application for deferral was approved
by the DFRT, members would not
have received their first pay increase
in November," he said.
"With deferral there was a high
risk that when a new WRA was even-
tually struck, back pay to November
10, 2011, would have been opposed
by the Commonwealth Advocate on
the basis it is not allowable under
current Commonwealth policy."
GEN Hurley said the current
instability in the global economy was
also an influential factor.
"The advice I received indicat-
ed that it was unlikely any deferral
would have resulted in a different
WRA given defence budget con-
straints," he said.
CAF AIRMSHL Geoff Brown
said he agreed with CDF about the
tough decision that had to be made
when the revised WRA offer didn't
receive overwhelming support.
"The 2011-14 WRA was a very
difficult arrangement to be develop-
ing in the current economic climate,"
"The risks of a delayed submis-
sion and the uncertainty of back pay-
ing any potential increase meant that
I fully supported CDF's decision to
progress the case with minority sup-
port because it was in the best inter-
ests of members that the pay rise was
granted in November."
An insert with the new pay rates
will be included in the November 24
edition of Air Force News.
