Casual members in Licensed Post Officers should have a 5% pay rise immediately following a decision of the Full Bench of the Fair Work Commission.
The casual loading has increased from 20% to 25% for all LPOs that were party to the Postal Services Industry Award, and all Victorian LPOs.
For those few LPOs not party to the Award, the loading increased from 20% in 2011.
The rise is the result of the decision of the Full Bench on 8 August to allow CEPU to withdraw an application to create a modern enterprise Award.
In addition, the compulsory Superannuation Guarantee contributions have increased from 9.25% to 9.5% as of 1 July 2014.
