The Guide applies, for lump sum payments only, to staff on ACT4, ACN4, AMT4 and AMN4 grades. Arrangements for those on ECA equivalent grades will be communicated direct.

Grade 10 Staff on Points 1 to 5 of the Salary Scale

A review of staff on Points 1 to 5 on the Grade 10 scale, who are eligible for progression through the scale, will also take place within the same timeframe, as detailed in the guides. Increments resulting from this progression review are not included in the number of available awards quoted above.
