The agreement allows a 7.5% increment in the base salary which consists of a 6% across the board, and an “additional increase of 1.5% of the average base salary to recognise ongoing increase in productivity.”

The pay increase took effect on January 1 and public servants got their first pay for the year on Wednesday (January 8).
