Variation to the Local Government (State) Award 2017

Members are advised that the tool allowances and insurance value in the Local Government (State) Award 2017 (the “Award”) have been varied.

On 31 October 2019 the Industrial Relations Commission of New South Wales varied the tool allowance rates and the insurance value rate in the Award to reflect an increase in the equivalent allowances under the Crown Employees (Skilled Trades) Award.

The variation is made in accordance with the leave reserved provisions at subclause 43 (i) of the Award and is operative from the first full pay period to commence on or after 31 October 2019.

The updated tool allowances and insurance value are as follows:
