Secondary and Area School Groundstaff rate increases in PP12

26 August 2014

Good morning

This is a reminder that the second tranche of the Secondary and Area School Groundstaff Collective Agreement  takes effect from 31 August 2014. Employees covered by this collective agreement who are also members of the Amalgamated Workers Union or have signed an IEA will have their base rate automatically applied in PP12 on pay date 2 September 2014. These increases will appear on your school's draft SUE report on 28 August 2014.

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 allowance 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 form (NOVO2nt) and submit to the Novopay Service Centre.

Please refer to Circular 2013/19 for further details on these changes.

Kind regards

The Novopay Service Centre team
