Unless your EBA states otherwise, the current superannuation rate is 9.5% of your “ordinary time earnings”. This means the income earned Monday to Friday including daily travel allowance but without all overtime earnings (See Clause 32 of the BCGOA)
You can contact CBUS on 1300 361 784 for further information.
You work 8 hours a day for 5 days (Monday to Friday) which totals 40 hours but get paid 38 hours (7.6 hours per day). The other 2 hours accrue towards an RDO. When you take an RDO you are paid 7.6 hours from your accrued hours, that way you receive 38 hours pay each week. RDO hours are also accrued on all paid leave.
All RDO’s are shown on our wage sheets.
