Fair Work Website made the below announcement in regard to the news:

“Since 2010, wages in awards have been gradually phasing from multiple state-based rates to one national rate. People have had to identify ‘old’ and ‘new’ award classifications and perform calculations to determine the correct rates. These time-consuming processes will no longer be necessary under the majority of awards from July 1.”
