ACT politicians have been awarded a 2.5 per cent pay rise, with Chief Minister Andrew Barr's salary to jump above $345,000 on July 1.
Mr Barr will still be paid less than the territory's top public service executives, after they were awarded an increase on par with politicians.
The ACT Remuneration Tribunal announced the pay rises on Wednesday after its annual autumn review. This year's increase follows a 2 per cent hike in 2017.
Members of the Legislative Assembly will be paid a base salary of $164,382, but most of them receive additional loading on top.
Mr Barr is entitled to 110 per cent in additional pay, which takes his salary to $345,202.
Deputy Chief Minister Yvette Berry will be paid $295,888 a year, while ministers and Opposition leader Alistair Coe will take home $279,450.
Top-level public service executives in the ACT will see their pay packets swell to $364,398 a year, with baseline executives to get $153,125.
Full-time statutory office holders, including the auditor general, have also been awarded a 2.5 per cent increase.
In the ACT Government's submission to the review in February, Mr Barr wrote that it was important for the territory to be able to attract and retain "high-calibre individuals" to work in the public service.
His submission said a "moderate" pay increase was expected, noting that his government had an election commitment to ensure that public officials' wages would continue to increase at a rate equivalent to the Consumer Price Index.
Figures released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics in February show public sector pay rose 2.4 per cent nationally last year, compared with 1.9 per cent for private sector workers.
