Base rate increase for Kaiarahi i te Reo, Therapists', ATSSD and Special Education Assistants in PP11

7 August 2014

Good morning

The new Kaiarahi i te Reo, Therapists', ATSSD and Special Education Assistants Collective Agreement became effective 6 June 2014. This results in an increase to base rates for members backdated to 27 June 2014, the date of promulgation, and a 2nd tranche base rate increase on 27 June 2015.

The base rate increase will be processed for the pay in PP11 and this change will be visible on your draft SUE report on 14 August 2014.

Employees who are covered by this collective agreement, who are also members of NZEI, will have their pay increase processed automatically based on the new terms backdated to 27 June 2014. There is no action for you to take in this instance.

Employees receiving a Salary Loading (SALLO) or Salary Loading - Paid on Extra Hours (SALLT) allowance will have their base salary increased to the new rate, but their allowance will be decreased by the same amount. If the combined old salary and old SALLO or SALLT is less than the new salary, the employee's base rate will be increased and the allowance ceased.

To increase the salary for these employees please complete a Pay Details Change for Non-Teachers (NOVO22nt) form and send to the Novopay Service Centre.

Employees covered by a promulgated Individual Employment Agreement (IEA)

School staff who are covered by this Collective Agreement, but who have signed a promulgated Individual Employment Agreement (IEA), will have their pay manually calculated based on the new terms effective from the date of signing a new IEA. This can be no earlier than the date of promulgation, 27 June 2014.

Please complete a Pay Details Change for Non-Teachers (NOVO22nt) form to advise the Novopay Service Centre of changes to pay arising from a new IEA.

Pay increase instructions received by the Novopay Service Centre before the manual form cut off on 11 August will be processed in PP11.

Any pay increase instructions received after the cut off for PP11 will be processed in the pay period the Novopay Service Centre receives your instructions.

For more detail about these changes please refer to the Circular 2014-39 Settlement of collective agreements for school support staff.

Kind regards
The Novopay Service Centre team
