Defence Amendment (Fair Pay for Members of the ADF) Bill 2014

Today I introduce the Defence Amendment (Fair Pay for Members of the ADF) Bill 2014. This is a very simple piece of legislation to solve a very simple problem.

An unnecessary pay crisis has developed for members of the ADF because this government has denied the men and women of our Army, Navy and RAAF a fair pay rise.

Indeed, the pay rise of 1.5% offered to our Diggers by this Government is effectively a pay cut because it fails to even keep track with the inflation rate.
