Remuneration Tribunal

1985 Review

Statement

STATEMENT

Subject to the restrictions imposed from time to time

by legislation, the Tribunal undertakes each year a general

review of the remuneration, allowances and entitlements of

those within its jurisdiction. This is the Tribunal's review

for the period commencing on 1 July 1985.

2. In making this review, tne Tribunal has, in general,

followed the procedure adopted by it in previous years. In

January 1985 the Tribunal published advertisements calling

attention to its review and inviting submissions from

interested parties (Appendix B). In addition, it wrote to a

number of those whose remuneration was the subject of the

review. In each case it drew attention, inter alia, to the effect on the review of the Wage Principles established by tne

Australian Conciliation and Arbitration Commission in its

judgment of 23 September 1984. (A copy of the form of letter

is Appendix C.)

3. As the result of the amendment made to s.5 of the

Remuneration Tribunals Act 1973 by Act No.73 of 1984 s .18, tne

Tribunal is, in its reports and determinations, required to

have regard to such Wage Principles.

4. The Australian Government, in its submission to tne

Tribunal (Appendix E) emphasised the need to exercise restraint

in wage determination and to observe the Wage Principles

established by the Australian Conciliation and Arbitration

Commission.

5. The Tribunal has concluded that it should apply such

Wage Principles, in terms and in their intent, and has

3

accordingly recommended or determined that, in general, changes

be made in remuneration only in accordance with tne National

Wage Case decisions.

6. In relation to amounts intended to reimburse

outgoings, it has, where appropriate, made changes in

accordance with movements in the Consumer Price Index since tne

adjustment made in April 1984, being tne last relevant

adjustment. In some cases, eg, travelling allowances and

cnarter allowances, changes have been made by reference to

changes in actual cost based on surveys undertaken by the Tribunal Secretariat.

7. The result of the statutory requirement that the Wage

Principles be applied is that, in some cases, changes have not

been able to be made to remuneration where otherwise changes

might have been warranted. In this regard, we refer in

particular to the views expressed by the members of the

Tribunal as to the levels of remuneration of Secretaries and the most senior public office holders: see paragraph 52 and

Appendix 0 of our 1984 Review. Whether and to what extent, in

the future, circumstances will allow appropriate adjustments to be made will be examined by the Tribunal as the circumstances permit.

8. On 24 May 1985, the Australian Conciliation and

Arbitration Commission made a determination in relation to the

remuneration of, inter alia, members of the Senior Executive

Service and the Clerical Administrative levels of the

Australian Public Service (Print F 8642). The increases in

remuneration so granted have been passed on to those public

office holders whose remuneration is related to such offices. No similar increase has been made in respect of Secretaries of

Departments and the most senior public office holders having

regard to the basis on which our determination of the salaries

of such persons was made in our 1984 Review.

4

Ministers, Senators, and Members of the House of

Representatives

9. The matters with which our reports and determinations deal in this regard are discussed in our 1984 Report,

paragraph 38.

10. The submissions made in relation to salaries by the

major political parties have been that, for the purpose of

providing leadership and example to the community, ministers

and other members of the Parliament should have adjustments to

their remuneration only in accordance with decisions in

National Wage Cases. As in our 1984 Review, we have given

effect to these submissions.

11. We record again that, as the result of the attitude

adopted by the members of the Parliament, they continue to

suffer a significant disadvantage in relation to their basic

salary: see paragraphs 43-45 of 1984 Review.

12. The purpose of allowances made to ministers and other

members of the Parliament is to provide a measure of

reimbursement of outgoings incurred by them in the performance of their functions. These allowances were last adjusted in

April 1984. On that occasion the Tribunal, applying the Wage Principles, adjusted the allowances by 15 per cent but the

Parliament reduced the increase in allowances to 8.6 per cent.

On this occasion the Tribunal has adjusted such allowances by

4.4 per cent, which represents the movement in the Consumer

Price Index for the four quarters ending on 31 March 1985.

13. Adjustment to charter and travelling allowances has been made by reference to the surveys of relevant cost

movements conducted by the Tribunal's Secretariat.

5

14. The nature and composition of outgoings for which such

allowances are made may vary from time to time. The Tribunal

keeps such matters under review.

15. Determinations have been made of the remuneration and allowances to be paid to members of the Parliament by reason of

their holding particular offices or performing particular

functions in, or in relation to, the Parliament or either House

of the Parliament: Determination No.7 of 1985. In determining

what it should do in this regard the Tribunal is required to

look to the relationship of what the members do to the working

of the Parliament.

16. Upon this basis, provision has again been made for

remuneration and allowances to be paid to the chairmen of

certain committees. In this review a change has been made in,

the position of the Chairman of the Joint Foreign Affairs and

Defence Committee of the Parliament. In making provisions of

this kind, the Tribunal has regard, inter alia, to the

significance of the committee and of the chairman of it in the

working of the Parliament, to the view of the Parliament and to

the submissions of the Government of the day in that regard.

17. Submissions were made to the Tribunal by the major

political parties and by individuals, senators and members

relating to entitlements, including spouse/children travel,

additional travelling allowance within electorate, postage,

government car transport, and overseas travel. Some

adjustments have been made in the determination dealing with

these matters.

18. The reference from the Government to the Tribunal

relating to significantly related matters (see Appendix D) did not include the general entitlements of shadow ministers, staff

for members of parliament or facilities and equipment in

electoral offices: consequently, we have not addressed the

submissions received on these subjects.

6

Judiciary

19. The remuneration of members of the judiciary has been

adjusted in accordance with National Wage Case decisions.

20. The allowance pa ία has been adjusted according to the

Consumer Price Index.

21. In our last review, the Tribunal drew attention to tne

need for review of tne remuneration of the judiciary and to tne

constraints now operative. The matter will be reviewed when

the Tribunal is able to do so.

Secretaries of Departments and Full-time Public Office Holders

22. The remuneration of secretaries of departments and

full-time public office holders has been adjusted in accordance

with National Wage Case decisions.

23. The allowance paid has been adjusted according to the

Consumer Price Index.

24. Some adjustments have been made in relation to the

remuneration of office holders in conformity with tne Wage

Principles.

Part-time Public Office Holders

25. The National Wage Case adjustments have automatically

been made to the remuneration of such office nolders.

26. In the case of Norfolk Island office holders,

adjustments have been made in accordance with the Norfolk

Island Retail Price Index.

Dear

Attached for your information is a copy of the advertisement which will appear in the national press on 5 January, relating to the review to be conducted by the Tribunal in 1985.

You will note that the advertisement contains a special reference to the requirement that the Tribunal have regard to the Wage Principles. This means that changes in level of salary for an individual office or class of offices will only be considered in those instances where there have been changes

in the work of the office concerned which constitute a significant net addition to work requirements, e.g. changes in charter or functions arising from amending legislation, new government directives, or decisions of the statutory authority resulting in significantly increased responsibilities.

In keeping with past practice, the Tribunal on its own initiative will review levels of expenditure-based allowances and entitlements, taking into account movements in the Consumer Price Index and changes in levels of relevant costs.

Persons lodging written submissions may seek leave of the Tribunal to elaborate on that submission. Any such requests will be considered in the light of the Tribunal's need for

additional information in order to gain an understanding of the material placed before it.

As mentioned in the advertisement, submissions should be forwarded to the office of the Tribunal no later than 15 February 1985.

Yours sincerely,

(A.A. Shakespeare) Secretary

The Hon Mr Justice D L Mahoney Chairman Remuneration Tribunal PU box 281

CIVIC SQUARE ACT 2608

My Dear Judge

Tne Tribunal in its 1984 Review decided that National Wage Case increases would H o w automatically to the salaries of all offices within its jurisdiction. The National Wage Case Decision of 3 April 1985 by the Australian Conciliation and Arbitration Commission, awarded a national wage increase of

2.6%. Accordingly, the salary of offices in the Tribunal's jurisdiction were adjusted by 2.6% from the beginning of the first pay period to commence on or after 6 April 1985.

Tne Government, in its submission to the Tribunal's 1984 Review, pointed to tne fact that parliamentarians had received only one non-national wage adjustment since July 1981 (a 7% increase in October 1982) and acknowledged that a clear entitlement existed under tne Wage Fixing Principles for a further increase. The

Government, however, submitted that in the interests of wage restraint, salary increases for this group be limited to National Wage adjustments. Of particular relevance was the fact

that the Labor, Liberal and National Parties' Conditions Committees' submissions to tne Tribunal were of the same view.

As a result of these submissions the Tribunal decided that there should be no increase to the relevant salaries of ministers, senators and members of Parliament. In addition, tne Tribunal made the statement that:-

"ministers, senators and members will receive, during the operation of the Wage Principles, salary increases only to the extent of the National Wage adjustments (if any) made from time to time.”

With respect to the current review by the Tribunal, the Government considers that the need to exercise restraint m wage determination so as to ensure sustained economic recovery is as important now, as it was m 1984. Accordingly,

the Government submits that tne Tribunal should not determine a salary increase for Parliamentarians on this occasion.

Pa r l i a m e n t House Ca n b e r r a A C T 2600

215

m e judj.Ci.ary, department needs and senior office holders have received post-indexation adjustments of 7% in July 19ti2 and 11.77» as a result of the 1984 Review, tne latter adjustment being phased, irt at 67» on 1 July 1984 and 5.77= from 1 January 1985. The Tribunal in its 1984 Review noting that the

wage Fixing Principles enabled it to establish a "firm anu equitable base for the operation or the Wage Principles m tne iuture", concluded that the 11.7% adjustment established an equitable base for tins group. Accordingly, the Government

submits that no increase be granted for these oirices.

In its submission to the 1984 Review a y tne Remuneration Tribunal, tne Government expressed its concern that the remuneration of senior oirice holders managing the Government's large commercial undertakings was not comparable to the remuneration ol cheir private sector counterparts, however, tne Government also submitted that due to the constraints imposed by

tne Wage Fixing Principles, tne problem was unable to be rectified at that tune. The Government, whilst having noted tne Tribunal's comments in relation to this group, considers that tne constraints referred to in its earlier submission are still

relevant and submits that there should be no general increase lor these office holders as a result of the Tribunal's current review.

As to tnose offices which are aligned with the Senior Executive Service and tne Third Division of tne APS, tne Government notes that they have received post-indexation salary adjustments identical to those received by tne APS Clerical/Administrative grades. In its 1984 Review the Tribunal set tne remuneration of these of!ices as that payable from time to time to the relevant Second or Third Division office. The Conciliation and Arbitration Commission m a decision on 24 May 1985 awarded a

2.0/= increase m tne salaries of the Senior Executive Service anu the Third Division of the APS. Trus increase Will be reflected automatically in the salaries ol these offices. Tne Government submits that tne Tribunal should not determine any otner increase tor this group.

The Government notes that the Tribunal has received a number of submissions by or on behalf or individual department heads, judges and senior office nolders seeking salary increases to compensate for work value changes. The Government submits

ttiat m considering these claims strict regard must be had for the wage Fixing Principles, particularly to Principle 4, work Value. Principle 4 Incorporates a set of rigorous tests which

claims lor increases based on work value must satisfy before consideration is given to granting any increase.

Finally, it is tne Tribunal's responsibility to determine whether adjustments to expense oi office allowances pertaining to most senior statutory offices and the parliamentarian's electorate allowances, are justified. The Government submits that tnese allowances should be reviewed on the oasis of the Wage Fixing Principles.

Yours sincerely

Ralph Willis
