Settlement of the Secondary Principals' Collective Agreement

The Secondary Principals' Collective Agreement has recently been signed, and the increases will be processed in pay period 07 (pay day 6 July).

As part of the settlement, principals who are members of the Post Primary Teachers' Association (PPTA) or SPANZ, will receive arrears back to 2 May 2016.

For union members, schools do not need to do anything as the increases to salary and allowances will be actioned automatically by Novopay.

For those on an Individual Employment Agreement (IEA), schools will need to submit a NOVO22t for principals who have chosen to sign the new IEA. These will be processed from PP07, and will include payment from the date the IEA was signed by the employee.

Please note that IEAs are only effective from the date of signing, and cannot be effective before the date they were promulgated by the Secretary for Education on 13 May 2016.

The changes will be reflected by the 2nd draft SUE.

Kind regards
