CPI supports Government's wage offer
 

24 April 2019

The ABS today released its Consumer Price Index data for Hobart for the March 2019 quarter, which shows that the cost of living declined in the quarter (by 0.2 per cent), and grew just 2.1 per cent over the year to the March 2019 quarter.

These figures support the Government’s position with respect to a fair and affordable wage offer to public servants.

Our most recent offer of seven per cent over three years exceeds the current rate of inflation by a considerable margin. And of course, we have also offered notable improvements in other important conditions.

The Tasmanian Government is committed to ensuring our State Service employees receive fair and reasonable pay increases and improvements to employment terms and conditions. It is our intention to continue to negotiate in good faith to achieve this outcome.
