School District 60 submits plan for support workers wage increase

The two-year deal is retroactive to July 1, 2013, and school districts across the province were left to find the funds within their existing budgets.

School Board Chair Jaret Thompson says specific details of its plan can’t be divulged due to the sensitive nature of bargaining and personnel information, but a summary of the “high level budget impacts” will presented at its meeting on October 21. 

About 33,000 unionized support workers are included in the provincial framework agreement , and most of them – about 27,000 – are members of the Canadian Union of Public Employees.
