Defence Pay Deal

The federal government is abandoning plans to cut allowances for Defence personnel. Speaking in Canberra Prime Minister Tony Abbott announced the government “is not proceeding with those changes to allowances”.

The government has notified the independent Defence Force Remuneration Tribunal the changes to allowances are not supported by the government and asked that they be discontinued. Restoring the allowances will mean discretionary leave, food and motor vehicle allowances will remain.
