The Department of Social Services provided a report back noting that the trial of the wage structure has concluded.

ARTD consultants are drafting a report on the trial's outcomes, which will be considered by the wage structure steering committee on 12 November, before being presented to the FWC in mid-December for public release.

The FWC has subsequently vacated the originally scheduled hearing dates for mid-December. New hearing dates are expected to be announced in early 2022.
