New rates include the 3 per cent national minimum wage increase applicable from 1 July 2019.

The MPGA advises members that the minimum rate for a level 1 full-time plumber under the Plumbing and Firesprinklers Award 2010 [MA000036]  is now $25.33 per hour or $962.49 per week. Further allowances (or higher minimum pay rate) may be applicable to your tradesperson and it is very important to review the attached document.
