The Department of Treasury provides quantitative and policy support concerning the Government’s wages policy framework to promote financially sustainable and fair wage outcomes across the public sector. 

Our stakeholders include the Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety’s Public Sector Labour Relations Unit as well as agencies with employees under a State Government industrial agreement.
