Now that we have finally reached the last days of this utterly extraordinary school year, I suspect that the emotion shared by the majority of Edmonton Public teachers is one of sheer relief, probably accompanied by ongoing concern about what lies ahead in September and beyond, a degree of frustration with what has (and hasn’t) occurred, and even a sense of “what just happened anyway?” (click HERE to continue reading)
Clause 3.1 of the Collective Agreement states:
3.1 Salary Pay Date/Schedule
3.1.1 The Board shall pay by electronic deposit to the financial institution of each teacher's choice, taking into consideration any necessary adjustments:
a) 1/12 of annual salary by the last banking day of each month except for December and August.
b) the December payment date is the last operational day prior to the Winter Break.
c) the August payment date is August 15 or the next banking day following August 15, if August 15 is not a banking day.
This means the June and July salary payment dates will be the last banking day of June and the last banking day of July, and the August salary payment date should be August 17, 2020 as that is the first banking day following August 15, 2020.
