District Allowance General Agreement
The rewards open up the minimum conditions of employment and serve as a safety net. Agreements are collective agreements that set out other conditions of employment and rights for certain workers and their employers. Members authorized in accordance with paragraph 18.104.22.168.d shall be remunerated at the grade of the isolated site in Annex 4.4.A, which the CDF decides to be located in the general area of the isolated duty station. The CoF must take into account the conditions described in point 4.4.3. Agreements are negotiated more regularly (usually every 2 or 3 years) between unions and employers and registered by the Western Australian Industrial Relations Board (WAIRC). After registration, the provisions of the contract apply to all workers at the workplace who perform work covered by the employment contract. Subject to subsection 2, this table shows the period for which a member may receive an ADF district allowance. It is important to read both the corresponding agreement and the price for the specific profession in order to understand the full needs of an employee. As a general rule, an agreement takes precedence over an arbitral award when the two clauses cover the same condition of employment and are contradictory.
The allocation rate for a member who meets the condition in column A and lives in a place with a note in column B is the rate in column C. The district allowance compensates for service in a location in Australia that is challenging. The distress must be due to isolation, harsh climate and cost of living. Note: The period during which a member who is temporarily outside the isolated site or who is seconded to service in a ship or submarine outside his or her isolated location may receive remuneration is set out in point 4.4.11. Example: The member is serving in Numbulwar, an isolated location in the Northern Territory. The neighbouring localities of Annex 4.4.A in general are Tindal and Jabiru. Tindal is a class D secluded place. Jabiru is a class E secluded place. The CDF reviewed living conditions in Numbulwar and decided that members serving there should receive the same supplement as Tindal. A member with a flexible disposition is not entitled to remuneration for a period of uninterrupted non-work of more than 28 days.
