Individual Employment Agreement Important Deadline 

Last week the Secretary of Education reiterated the need for non-union teacher aides to sign the latest  Individual Employment Agreement (IEA) by the 18 September 2020. Completion of the IEA by these teacher aides ensures that they receive the new pay equity rates  in the November pay cycle and the back payment from the 12 February 2020.  

The Teacher Aide Pay Equity settlement is a milestone event in the sector and recognises the value provided by these members of staff to their school communities.

School Boards and principals are encouraged to confirm the pay equity settlement and new rates with all teacher aides especially those who are non-union members. For more information you can register for one of our webinars and review the forms and resources which are available online, if you click here.
