Level 3 SSO, ECW and AEW members may be eligible to progress to a higher salary increment.
In previous rounds of enterprise bargaining, AEU members won an additional incremental salary step for SSOs, ECWs and AEWs classified at Levels 1 and 2 holding a relevant qualification. Many members are already accessing this additional salary step.
Following a win with the 2020 Agreement, that higher incremental salary step is now also available to SSOs, AEWs and ECWs classified at Level 3 and above. If you have been at the current top salary increment for one year, with satisfactory performance and hold a relevant qualification, you may be eligible.
The full detail can be found in the Enterprise Agreement, clause 6.4:
See Schedule 1.4 of the Enterprise Agreement for salary levels and other details.
See Schedule 1.5 of the Enterprise Agreement for salary levels and other details.
See Schedule 1.6 of the Enterprise Agreement for salary levels and other details.
