The Defence Force Welfare Association (DFWA) wants to hear from current and former members of the ADF and their families on the proposed salary increase under WRA 2023-2026
The proposed increase, 11.2% over the term of the arrangement (three years), to salary and salary-related allowances comprises:
- 4% – from 9 Nov 23 (to take effect 23 Nov 23)
- 3.8% – from 7 Nov 24 (to take effect 21 Nov 24)
- 3.4% – from 6 Nov 25 (to take effect 20 Nov 25)
DFWA has been authorised by the Defence Force Remuneration Tribunal (DFRT) to make written and oral representations on behalf of Australian Defence Force members, separate to the chain of command.
DFWA invites current and former ADF members and their families to complete a short survey (4 minutes) about the proposed salary increase. DFWA will take these views into account when intervening at the DFRT Hearing.
The survey must be completed by 23:59 (AEST) Tuesday 26 September. The survey cannot be accessed on the DPN.
The DFRT Hearing is scheduled for early October. Information about the DFRT can be found at www.dfrt.gov.au .
