Support Staff in Schools second tranche will come into effect as of 29 June 2015

25 June 2015

Good afternoon

On 29 June 2015 employees paid under the Support Staff in Schools Collective Agreement (including those on the latest IEAs) will have their pay grades automatically updated in line with the new single merged scale in PP2608.These automatic changes will display in the first draft SUE report of PP2608, on 2 July 2015.

Important changes to note:
Due to this Collective change, new Designation Codes have been created to help distinguish between the Associate and Administration positions within the Grades on the new scale.
The new Designation Codes and Pay Scales are located in the Payroll Codes section of the Novopay Website.

Support Staff who did not sign the 2014 Individual Employment Agreement will not be affected and will remain on the old scale and designation codes.
The EMGRR pay scale for Executive Management has not changed, only the Designation Code.

For more information on the merged pay scale, please refer to the NZSTA website.

Payslips:
There is a known error on payslips for PP2608 for employees associated with the Support Staff in Schools Collective Agreement pay scale merge. For affected employees, the data that displays in the 'Details' section of their payslip, will show duplicate lines for both old and new grades but as this is informational only it does not affect their pay.The correct pay information for employees is displayed at the top of their payslip under the 'Summary' section.

You do not need to report the error to the Service Centre.
