We stand for low wages, and this is a step towards a more equitable wage and employment conditions for all New Zealanders that allow for a decent standard of living. 3A.5.2 Teaching assistants paid at grade B, stage 9 of the collective school contract 2017-2019 (stage 2 in the collective school contract 2019-2022) and who have been at this level for at least two years, are translated into Work Matrix B-C Step 6, unless the employer indicates, before August 14, 2020, that the role of head teacher remains exclusively within Matrix B and, in this case, translated into Work Matrix Step B5. If schools and Kura do not use the additional salary capital funds for this particular purpose, the ministry will recover these funds. After a meeting with the ministry on November 29, members of the kairahi i Te Reo school support team and collective agreements received their first offer. Members voted on December 10, 2019 to accept their collective agreement offer. Boards of directors and boards of directors are required to plan their staff to ensure that they maintain benefits during this period.
This was a positive and collaborative effort with the ministry and NZEI Te Riu Roa, and we have an obligation to develop advice, resources, tools and support to all board directors. “The agreement includes a teacher assistance fund for learning assistance and development assistance of $790,000 over the duration of the school support staff collective agreement (July 2020 -February 2022). Teacher assistants voted for pay equity, and all support staff voted to change their collective agreement! Pay equity for teacher benefits includes salary increases, changes in the way skills are assessed, a new allowance, changes in the number of hours that may vary, and career development. The amendments came into effect in December 2019 with the collective agreements. The school administrators keep our schools running smoothly, day after day. “If the offer is accepted by the members of the NZEI Te Riu Roa, the salary increase will come into effect from 29 November, with payment of the new rates in people`s pockets from March 2020. Currently, personal support on the bottom of the four steps of the payment of the minimum wage of $17.70 per hour and ninety per cent of teachers are paid below the minimum wage. It is time to support staff to build their collective power to make a real difference to their pay and working conditions. Sign up to make a difference and show your support. The employer subsidy rate of the public pension fund will automatically increase from 14.4% to 14.9% from the first reference period after July 1, 2020 (salary period 08 – salary of July 15).
The contribution rate for employees/members remains unchanged at 6.5%. In addition, starting July 1, 2020, the ministry proposed a $500,000-a-year learning and professional development fund to fund a pilot fund to support teacher learning and development.
