Wage Movements covering NSW workers in 2008 2009

Client:  Unions NSW

This paper reports on trends in wage movements contained in different industrial instruments regulating New South Wales employees. It covers developments in New South Wales awards and New South Wales enterprise agreements, and compares these with trends in enterprise agreements in the federal jurisdiction. To do so, this report draws on enterprise agreement data from the Workplace Research Centre's 'ADAM Database' which covers federal and State jurisdictions. This data is complemented by data on federal collective agreements from DEEWR's quarterly release of statistics using the Workplace Agreements Database.
