VARIATION OF THE DETERMINATIONS OF THE SALARIES AND ALLOWANCES TRIBUNAL FOR CLERKS AND DEPUTY CLERKS OF THE PARLIAMENT, PUBLIC SERVICE OFFICE HOLDERS INCLUDED IN THE SPECIAL DIVISION AND PERSONS HOLDING OFFICES PRESCRIBED IN SALARIES AND ALLOWANCES REGULATION NUMBER 3, MEMBERS OF PARLIAMENT, WESTERN AUSTRALIAN INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS COMMISSIONERS AND MEMBERS OF THE STATE ADMINISTRATIVE TRIBUNAL PURSUANT TO SECTION 6(1)(a)(ab)(b)(c)(d)(e)

JUNE 2013

PREAMBLE

1.   In accordance with Section 6 of the Salaries and Allowances Act 1975 (‘the SA Act’), the Salaries and Allowances Tribunal (‘the Tribunal’) is required to “inquire into and determine, the remuneration to be paid or provided to -

 a. Ministers of the Crown and the Parliamentary Secretary of the Cabinet;
 ab. subject to section 44A(4) and (5) of the Constitution Acts Amendment Act 1899, a Parliamentary Secretary appointed under section 44A(1) of that Act;
 b. officers and members of the Parliament including additional remuneration to be paid or provided to a member, other than an officer, of Parliament who is the Chairman, Deputy Chairman or a member of a standing committee of a House or a joint standing committee of both Houses;
 c. Clerk of the Legislative Council or Clerk of the Legislative Assembly or the Deputy Clerk of either House;
 d. officers of the Public Service holding offices included in the Special Division of the Public Service; and
 e. a person holding any other office of a full-time nature, created or established under a law of the State, that is prescribed for the purposes of this section, but not being an office the remuneration for which is determined by or under any industrial award or agreement made or in force under any other law of the State.”

BACKGROUND

2.   In January of this year, the Tribunal resolved to initiate an annual ‘general remuneration adjustment’ to address the situation where, due to the vagaries of the economic and labour market changes, some classes of officers may receive little or no increases during the year whilst others received more.

3.   This annual adjustment, which takes into account economic and labour market information available at the time, will apply to all public office holders under the Tribunal’s jurisdiction. It will be effective from 1 July.

4.   In making this determination, the Tribunal has also been mindful of the upward salary pressure exerted by salary movements in public sector classifications below that of offices within the Tribunal’s jurisdiction.

5.   This annual adjustment, does not discharge the Tribunal’s obligations under Section 8 of the SA Act which “requires the Tribunal to report and make a determination annually and ensure that –

  1. not more than a year elapses between one determination under section 6(1) in respect of an office or other position referred to in that subsection and another; and

  2. not more than a year elapses between one report under section 7(1) and another; and

  3. not more than a year elapses between one determination under section 7A and another. ”

6.   Therefore, the Tribunal will continue to inquire into each statutory office within its jurisdiction, making adjustments to relativities, classifications and alignments relevant to the office or classes of offices within the statutory periods required.

7.   The Tribunal has issued a separate determination for Local Government Chief Executive Officers and Elected Members. These determinations fulfil the Tribunal’s statutory obligations of reviewing the relativities, classifications and alignments relevant to the Local Government sector.

8.   A Report regarding a general remuneration adjustment for the Judiciary has been issued separate to this determination. The statutory obligations in this regard require the Tribunal to “report to the Minister on, the question whether any alterations are desirable in the remuneration to be paid or provided to judges, District Court judges, masters of the Supreme Court and magistrates and the Parliamentary Inspector of the Corruption and Crime Commission, and if the Tribunal reports that any such alterations are desirable it shall, in its report recommend the nature and extent of the alterations that should be made.”

9.   The Tribunal is currently undertaking reviews of remuneration levels of Senior Legal Officers and Members of Parliament under section 8 of the SA Act.

CURRENT INQUIRY

10.   In discharging the responsibilities given to it by the Parliament, the Tribunal has in the context of its current inquiry, adopted the following approach:

  • advertised for public submissions;
  • written to all current office holders within its jurisdiction and considered the submissions made;
  • sought advice from and met with the relevant Statutory Advisers;
  • sought a briefing from the Department of Treasury and considered the current economic and labour market data;
  • had appropriate ‘regard’ for the Government’s wages policy, the State’s financial position and fiscal strategies; and
  • considered a submission from the Premier on behalf of the Government of Western Australia.

Public Submissions

11.   An advertisement calling for public submissions to the Tribunal’s inquiry was placed in The West Australian newspaper on Thursday, 13 June 2013 with a closing date of Friday, 21 June 2013. The advertisement was also placed on the Tribunal’s website at http://www.sat.wa.gov.au/LatestNews/Pages/Default.aspx

12.   The Tribunal received no submissions from the public.

Submissions from Office Holders

13.   A letter was sent to all office holders within the Tribunal’s jurisdiction calling for submissions to the Tribunal’s inquiry with a closing date of Friday 21 June 2013. No submissions were received relevant to the General Remuneration Adjustment. Some submissions were received from office holders, however, as their submissions related to relativities, classifications and alignments relevant to their position or classes of office holders it was decided that these would be considered as part of their offices statutory reviews.

Statutory Advisers

14.   The Tribunal consulted with Hon George Cash AM, who has been appointed to assist the Tribunal in its inquiries in so far as they relate to Members of Parliament.

15.   The Tribunal also consulted with Mr Mal Wauchope, Public Sector Commissioner, who has been appointed to assist the Tribunal in its inquiries with respect to officers holders within the Special Division of the Public Service and Prescribed Office Holders.

16.   The Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) in its “Statement of Monetary Policy” of May 2013, noted the “subdued national outlook over the next year or so for GDP growth reflecting the approaching peak in mining investment, ongoing fiscal consolidation and the high level of the Australian dollar.” The RBA also noted that “labour market conditions had remained subdued over recent months and that trend employment growth remained below the rate of growth in the working-age population”.

17.   While the outlook for the Western Australian economy is positive, the Department of Treasury notes that the pace of growth in the domestic economy is easing. Inflation is expected to remain within the RBA’s target range of 2% to 3%. Employment growth has slowed in Western Australia due to substantial easing in full time employment growth.

18.   The Government of WA acknowledges that the Public Sector Wages Policy does not apply to office holders under the Tribunal’s jurisdiction but invites the Tribunal to take it into account as a guide in considering adjustments under this determination. The Tribunal is cognisant of the policy and public sector wage and salary movements generally.

CONCLUSIONS

19.   With the implementation of this ‘general remuneration adjustment’, the Tribunal can ensure the degree of transparency necessary in the determination of remuneration for public offices. It affords the opportunity to assess relativities between the various public service and statutory appointments and identifies the cost particular to appointments necessary for the good government and administration of Western Australia.

20.   Consistent with emerging trends in economic indicators and the degree of caution expressed by economic commentators generally, the Tribunal determines that an increase in remuneration of 2.6% effective from 1 July 2013 shall apply to public office holders within its jurisdiction.

The determination will now issue.
