July 2020 pay increase – how does it work?

G3+ teachers

Currently on step 10:

If you have been on step 10 for 12 months or more, you will automatically move to the new step 11 on July 1. This will not require attestation by your principal.

If you have been on step 10 for fewer than 12 months, you will stay on step 10, but will automatically get the new rate for that step. Once you have completed 12 months on the step, you will move to the new step 11. This move will require attestation by your principal.

Currently below step 10:

If you are below step 10, you will automatically move to the new rate for your current step on July 1.  After 12 months on that step, you will then move to the next step. This will require attestation by the principal.

For example: A teacher on step 7 with an anniversary date of January 28 will get the new rate for step 7 on the July 1, 2020, then move to step 8 on the January 28, 2021.

G1, G2, and G3 teachers

If you have been at your salary maximum for a year or more:

You will be able to move to the next step on the scale on July 1, 2020, without the need for attestation. From there, you will progress one step each year (with attestation) from that date until you reach step 10, which is your new maximum step.

For example: A G2 who, come June 30, has been on step 7 for more than a year, will move to step 8 on July 1. They will be eligible to move to step 9 on July 1, 2021, and to step 10 on July 1, 2022.

If you have been at your salary maximum for less than a year:

You will get the new rate for your current step on July 1, 2020, and then progress to the next step after you have completed a year on your current step. This move will require attestation by your principal. Each year after that, you will move up one step until you reach step 10, which is the new G1, G2, and G3 maximum.

For example: A G2 who has been on maximum step 7 for five months come June 30 will stay on step 7 at the new salary rate until January 2021 (completing their 12 months on the step). At this point, they move to step 8, and will be able to move to step 9 in January 2022, then step 10 in January 2023.

If you are not currently at your salary maximum:

On July 1, you will get a new rate for your current step. You will move to the next step after you have completed a year on your current step. This move will require attestation by your principal. You will, however, now be able to move a step each year in the usual way until you get to step 10, your new maximum step.
