Update on Scale Steps in 2023-2024
Teachers are accustomed to an increase in Salary Steps at the start of every school year.
Exceptionally in our last Provincial Collective, under clause 6-2.01 d) it states, “experience acquired in 2022-2023 shall not allow for an advancement in step.” This is a direct effect of the plan to remove a step off the entire table, ensuring that teachers get to the highest paid level at Step 16 instead.
As a result, the expected increase was delivered on the 100th school day of the 2022-2023 year instead.
What that means for teachers at RSB is that while your seniority and experience will increase as of August 2023, your pay scale step will remain the same as the 2022-2023 year, according to the following table which went into effect on March 30th 2023.
(Future raises are currently under negotiation with the Commun Front, as our Collective agreement expired on March 31, 2023.)
