Local Government NSW has advised employers that a 2.5% increase has been granted to the total remuneration packages of General Managers and Senior Staff engaged under the Office of Local Government (OLG) Standard Contracts.
It said subclause 8.5 of the OLG’s Standard Contracts of Employment for General Managers and Senior Staff provides that:
“On each anniversary of the commencement date, the total remuneration package will be increased by a percentage amount that is equivalent to the latest percentage amount increase in remuneration for senior executive office holders as determined by the Statutory and Other Officers Remuneration Tribunal”.
On 5 August 2021, the Statutory and Other Officers Remuneration Tribunal (SOORT) handed down its 2021 determination.
The effect of subclause 8.5 of the OLG Standard Contracts and the 2021 determination is that the total remuneration packages of General Managers and Senior Staff employed under the Standard Contracts are to be increased by 2.5% on the anniversary of the contract commencement date falling between 1 July 2021 and 30 June 2022.
Following the 2021 determination, on and from 1 July 2021 the minimum total remuneration package payable under s.332(2)(b) of the Local Government Act 1993 (NSW) is $197,400 per annum.
