FACT: There will be no cuts to shiftworker penalty rates. FACT: Shiftworker entitlements will be improved in the new agreement with higher overtime rates for employees covered by Schedule 2. Shiftworkers will also receive penalty payments on each day of recreation leave (without the current five day minimum). FACT: The NT Allowance ($18.40 per week) was introduced in the 1970s to attract Public Servants from Canberra to move to the Territory. Employees currently receiving NT Allowance will continue to do so. The offer supports families: Providing superannuation for first 12 months of parental leave Providing paid partner leave for primary caregivers Improved flextime and part-time conditions These improvements build on the current family friendly conditions which includes six weeks recreation leave and provides greater work life balance.
