Workers in electricity, gas, water and waste services received 2.6% extra pay in the last financial year.
Both the trend and seasonally adjusted wage indexes rose 2.1% across all categories of employment in 2014-15.
Employees in education and training also enjoyed respectable annual wage increases of 2.5%.
Aussies in retail trade, accommodation and food services, transport, postal and warehousing, health care and social assistance, arts and recreation services and other services all experienced rises of 2.3% in 2014-15.
The smallest gains were attributed to those in mining, adding just 1.3% to the total hourly rates of pay.
Construction, professional, scientific and technical services, and administrative and support services all recorded through the year growth of less than 2% for at least the last year and a half.
