We’ve received a number of calls about the PDA payment.

The Professional Development Allowance was due to be paid in the first full pay period after 1 May, according to the award, so we made direct representation to HR and payroll to again find out why the wait.

Today they acknowledged it should be paid this pay, but said they traditionally don't do that to avoid overpaying part-time and casuals who may be require a different amount to be paid based on the date of their ‘next pay period’, but they have assured us it will be paid in PP25.

Members should check their PP25 and if the PDA isn't included please contact HACSUassist with a copy of the pay slip.

For more information about this or any other industrial matter, members should contact HACSUassist on 1300 880 032 or email or complete our online contact form
