CPSU representatives in the NT have recently won more than $40 million for public servants affected by a government wage freeze.  

Earlier this year, the government was not moving on its promise to lift their public sector wage freeze and replace their lump sum payments with a promised 2% pay rise. 

CPSU representatives launched a dispute with government which went all the way to the Fair Work Commission. 

As a result of this dispute and members’ collective pressure, all NT public servants received both a 2% pay rise and lump sum payment this year and are set to receive further pay rises and lump sums in 2024. 

The lump sums alone were worth over 40 million dollars which is a phenomenal outcome for our members.
