The review of the graduate rates in the Pharmacy Award was to proceed as a continuation of the four-yearly award review process.

However, along with the resignation of FWC president Iain Ross , the FWC recently announced a conclusion to the four-yearly award reviews.

At a directions hearing held on 8 November 2022, Acting President Hatcher indicated to the parties that APESMA could initiate a fresh application in relation to the outstanding graduate rates in the Pharmacy Award.

Accordingly, APESMA is preparing that application and it will be lodged shortly.
