WACOSS and Community Employers WA are calling on the State Government to provide funds in the October budget to ensure that community services are not cut as a result of service providers having to meet the increasing costs of complying with 2012 Equal Remuneration Order. The Order was made to redress the gender-related underpayment of community sector workers. It provides for significant pay increases every year through to 2020 and a Report released last week shows its impact on services is already significant and will increase. Since then, the National Minimum Wage increase of 3.3% and the decision to limit the indexation of contracts to 0.83% have compounded the impact.
