Nzei Support Staff In Schools Collective Agreement

It is time for support workers to build their collective power to change their wages and working conditions. Sign up to make a difference and show your support. NZEI Te Riu Roa Members work in every community in New Zealand and lead and commit to quality public education. We are the 50,000 school leaders, teachers and facilitators who work in primary, departmental and secondary schools, as well as in early childhood centres, special education and school guidance. We come together as NZEI Te Riu Roa – New Zealand`s largest educational union, a contractual organization and a strong advocate of quality public education. We have the most important task in New Zealand – training for the future. If you want a printed copy of this agreement, we advise you to download the following PDF version. Teachers support student learning, from early childhood to high school “I`m so proud of the way we`ve all fought for this offer. We have written to MPs, campaigned in our schools, spoken to parents and attracted media attention.

This tireless collective action was decisive,” she says. The school administrators keep our schools running smoothly, day after day. Under this plan, the minimum wage of $21.15 is considered the base rate for all support employees and kairahi members who currently earn less than that rate. All members earning more than $21.15 will receive a 3% increase on printed prices. Currently, auxiliaries at the bottom four levels of the pay scale receive the minimum wage of 17.70 $US per hour and ninety per cent of teachers are paid below the minimum wage. This paid campaign is also relevant to administrators, Kai-rahi i te reo, scientific technicians, coordinators and all other support collaborators. Support officers received their first offer on November 29, 2019 and voted on December 10, 2019 to ratify a settlement of their collective bargaining. For too long, the crucial work of school staff has been undervalued and uncertain from one semester to the next. This year is different. Use these resources to help you discuss in your schools and communities what we want as support staff. We begin our demand for pay equity for school administration employees, especially by finding out what these employees are doing. We use this information as part of the claim to understand the value you bring to your workplace.

Supports include teachers, administrators, librarians, therapists and technicians. Teachers voted for the comparison. Then, all facilitators will vote on whether the collective agreement should be amended. 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. 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.
