What happens if my rate hasn’t been increased?
If your base rate has not increased after starting Term 2, 2022, you should talk to your practice manager or supervisor about increasing your base rate and any back payments. General Practice Supervision Australia (GPSA) have informed all their members of the increase and have advised them to backpay GP registrars who did not receive an increase to their base rate.
What happens if I have negotiated my base rate above the NTCER minimum? Will I still receive an increase?
If you have negotiated above the NTCER minimum for your fortnightly base rate, you may not receive an increase to your pay, however, this depends on what exactly is written into your employment agreement. Read through your employment agreement carefully to make sure. When it comes to negotiating your employment agreement for the next training term, keep in mind this increase to the base rates of pay and adjust your asking figure accordingly.
Why will the base rate of pay increase?
