The Defence Force Welfare Association (DFWA) has been advised that the Government and ADF have agreed to present to the Defence Force Remuneration Tribunal (DFRT) a proposal that the next three year Workplace Remuneration Arrangement (WRA) for the ADF, commencing November 2017, provides for a 2%pa wage increase for each of the next three years.
Significantly there are to be no “offsets” or conditions of service or entitlements that ADF members will need to offer in recompense.
In the current economic environment the DFWA considers the offer is reasonable, and will seek the opinions of its ADF members before presenting its final position to the Tribunal later this year.
As an intervener in the deliberations of the Defence Force Remuneration Tribunal's consideration of this matter, the DFWA will take into account the views presented to it by ADF members..
