Changes to Alpine Resorts Award for 2018

Previously, all seasonal rates and salaries under the Alpine Resorts Award included a provision for Annual Leave in the hourly rate or salary. On the 22nd December 2017, the Fair Work Commission (FWC), as part of its four yearly review of modern awards, determined that seasonal rates in the Award would have this provision removed and this change would come into effect from the 1st January 2018.

So, from the 1st January 2018 all seasonal rates of pay under the Award, including salaries and hourly pay rates, have had the loading that was included for the provision of Annual Leave removed and in its place staff will now accrue Annual Leave. This has resulted in hourly pay rates and salaries being reduced by this loading amount but effectively sees an equivalent value now being accrued in Annual Leave for the duration of the employment term. 

Perisher Uniforms off to a Good Home!

237 Old stock of Perisher uniforms have been sent to Pambula Rotary club for distribution to Nepal. 

This is an ongoing relationship with Pambula Rotary Club and lowers the number of clothing items that would have ended up in landfill and puts them to a great purpose. People in a small mountain village in Nepal will receive a shipment of these jackets soon, providing much needed warmth and protection in the high altitude climate.

A big thanks to Pambula Rotary and Pebbles for Nepal for implementing this great initiative!
