The AMWU has applied to vary the federal Metal Industry Award 1984 ((ODN C No. 02568 of 1984)) so as to incorporate a new scale of payments for employees who are required to utilise the skills they have gained through an approved traineeship.

The application seeks to establish a scale of payments for skill levels A B & C in the Award based on years of secondary school completed and years out of school. The application is in similar terms to an application granted recently for the Federal Furniture and Furnishing Trades (NSW) Consolidated Award, 1995 [SPLINTER 4007, 5014, 1183, 4004].

The AMWU is also attempting to increase the rates of pay for unapprenticed juniors. At present, junior rates are calculated as a percentage of the clause 13 base rate without supplementary payments. The AMWU’s application seeks to incorporate supplementary payments in the Clause 13 rate as the basis for calculating rates for juniors.

Employers have been directed to provide submissions by 23 December 1996 in regards to the application concerning completed traineeship rates and by 10 January 1997 in the case of junior rates.
