Yesterday, ESSB confirmed that its teachers will receive their claims for the Value Added Program (reference: appendix XXVI of the 2010-2015 Collective Agreement) on their regular pay of Thursday, June 19, 2014. This year, each credit will be paid at a rate of $18.18. Teachers should verify their next pay stubs and contact the school board or union if they have any concerns or questions.
Good news! On today’s pay, teachers should have received an adjustment and retro pay dating back to January 1, 2011 as a result of Salary Equity. Consequently, the salary scales have also changed (for the better) as can be seen in this memo sent to schools and centres today.
Teachers who worked after December 31, 2011 but are no longer employed by ESSB should contact the school board to receive the money that is due to them.
