Piecework Fruit Picking Rates
Almost all fruit picking on our orchard is paid by piecework picking rates as shown below.

If we offer you a job it will be as a piece-work fruit picker. This means that your earnings are based on your productivity. The more bins of fruit you pick the more you will earn. There is no minimum or fixed weekly wage.

The pay rate for a bin of fruit is worked out in accordance with the Horticulture Award 2010 and set in agreement with the Australian Worker's Union. These rates will be paid for all work performed in accordance with the individual piecework agreement you will be offered at the commencement of employment. You will then be provided with a copy of the individual piecework agreement.
