CPI for the year to 30 September 2017

Tēnā koutou katoa

The CPI for the year to 30 September 2017 is 1.9%>

This is therefore the 2018 across-the-board increase that those staff on our collective employment agreements, or on individual agreements that mirror the collectives, will receive.

Managers and Heads may find that this information provides useful context as they consider their GSRR recommendations.
