The ABC reports a 3.5% pay rise for our elected representatives in the Legislative Assembly.
Chief Minister Katy Gallagher says the increase is in line with that offered to administration staff in the ACT Public Service.
“The Government’s submission to the Remuneration Tribunal indicated that pay rises for MLAs, executives and public officials should not exceed the increases available to workers in the broader community, in particular members of the ACT Public Service,” she said.
“This year’s increase for MLAs, executives and public officials is the same as that offered to administrative staff in the ACT Public service as part of enterprise bargaining.”
That takes them up to $125,259 a year.
