Educational and/or Professional Qualifications Hereinafter Referred to as Qualifications

Each teacher shall be classified on the basis of Manitoba Teaching Certificates and Qualifications Regulation No. 515/88 as amended to the date hereof, provided:

That a teacher holding a vocational certificate (Industrial) or Letter of Authority to teach the vocational industrial course, shall be placed in Class IV, unless the teacher’s qualifications are such as to entitle the teacher to a higher classification.

9.03
Clinicians

Each clinician subject to the provisions of the Collective Agreement and employed by the Division on or after January 1st, 1981, will be classified by the Professional Certification and Student Records Unit of Manitoba Education and Advanced Learning of the Province of Manitoba, and the Division will, if the clinician was hired before January 1st, 1981, continue to recognize the classification assigned to the clinician by the Division notwithstanding the classification may not be the same as the classification assigned by the said Professional Certification and Student Records Unit. Clinicians employed by the Division prior to January 1st, 1981 who improve their qualifications after December 31st, 1980 will not receive recognition from the Division for the improved qualifications until the improved qualifications exceed the qualifications for the classification already assigned by the Division and then only if the qualifications are recognized by the Professional Certification and Student Records Unit as being sufficient to qualify for a change in classification.

9.04
Teaching Experience

(a) The term “teaching experience” where used in this Agreement unless the context expressly provides otherwise, shall mean the aggregate of:

(i) Years of teaching experience before the effective date of the individual teacher’s contract with the Division referred to in Article 5 of this Agreement, and
(ii) Years of teaching experience as a member of the staff of the Division from the effective date of the individual teacher’s contract until the date the teacher’s employment is terminated except as otherwise provided herein, and
(iii) Years of teaching experience, recognized by Manitoba Education, Citizenship and Youth while on leave of absence from the Division.
(b) The following shall be included in determining the aggregate number of years and fraction of years of teaching experience before the effective date of the individual teacher’s contract with the Division:

(i)

The years and fraction of years of teaching experience as determined by Manitoba Education and Advanced Learning; and

(ii) The periods of Sabbatical Leave from the Winnipeg Staff; and
(iii) For those teachers who teach Vocational Industrial Education, the length of work experience after qualification in the trade for a period of up to five (5) years for teachers holding a certificate in Vocational Industrial Education or a Letter of Authority for vocational industrial subjects.
(iv) For those teachers who teach Vocational Industrial Education, in non-trade areas, a period of up to three (3) years shall be recognized for related experience achieved by the teacher after becoming qualified in the area in which they are employed by virtue of having served a recognized apprenticeship or having completed recognized training acceptable to the Division. In coming to a conclusion that related experience and acceptable training will or will not be recognized the Division shall take into account all relevant factors and shall act reasonably and fairly having regard to all circumstances made known by the teacher prior to the Division determining salary entitlement.
(c) The following provisions shall apply in determining the aggregate number of years and fraction of years of teaching experience after the effective date of the individual teacher’s contract with the Division:

(i)

A year of teaching experience on the Winnipeg Staff which shall include teaching experience recognized by Manitoba Education and Advanced Learning (including Maternity Leave as recognized by the Department) for teaching experience purposes while on leave of absence from the Division, shall mean ten (10) teaching months or each two hundred (200) teaching days, as the case may be, and shall include any period of Sabbatical Leave, except that every twenty (20) days of absence from service without salary in any school year after the effective date of the individual teacher’s contract shall be counted as one (1) month of absence. An absence from service without salary for a period in aggregate of less than twenty (20) days in any school year shall not be taken into account.

e.g., – 1 to 19 days equals no absence;
– 20 to 39 days equals one (1) month’s absence;
– 40 to 59 days equals two (2) month’s absence; and so on.
(ii) In the case of part time teachers referred to in Article 9.06 of this Agreement a year of teaching experience shall mean two hundred (200) teaching days in aggregate.

e.g., – two (2) one half (½) teaching days of paid service equals one (1) teaching day.
– twenty (20) teaching days of paid service equals one (1) teaching month.
– five (5) months of paid service equals one half (½) of a school year.

9.05
Method of Determining Basic Salary Entitlement

(a) Application of Retroactive Salary Adjustments

The salary adjustments retroactive to the effective date of this Agreement shall be paid to any teacher who has left the service or who has been granted leave of absence since that date and prior to the date this Collective Agreement is executed as follows:

(i) to the estate of a teacher who has died;
(ii) to a teacher who is retired on pension;
(iii) to a teacher who has been granted leave of absence;
(iv) to a teacher who has resigned.

In the case of 9.05(a) (iii) and (iv) entitlement to retroactive salary shall cease one (1) year after being notified by the Division at the teacher’s last known address.

The Division shall provide the Association the names of all teachers whose cheques are returned when mailed to the last-known address.

(b) Increments

The basic salary of a teacher shall on completion of each year of teaching experience, be increased by an increment as indicated in the Basic Salary Schedule until the teacher has reached the maximum salary for the class. If the years of teaching experience before the effective date of the teacher’s individual contract are expressed by a whole number plus a half, the half year shall be considered to be five (5) months of teaching experience on the Winnipeg Staff for the purpose of determining the date for payment of the first increment.

For the purpose of this subsection the date that the increment becomes payable on the completion of a year of teaching experience as provided in Article 9.04 hereof, shall be as follows:

(i) If the year’s experience is completed between the 1st and 15th day inclusive of the month, the increment shall be paid on the 1st of that month;
(ii) If the year’s experience is completed between the 16th and the last day inclusive of the month, the increment shall be paid on the 1st day of the next succeeding month;
(iii) If the completion of the year’s experience falls on any day between July 1st and August 31st inclusive in any year, the increment shall be paid on the 1st day of September of that year; provided that notwithstanding any other provisions contained in this Agreement, any teacher, the effective date of whose individual teacher’s contract is a date between December 16th to 31st inclusive or January 1st to 15th inclusive, shall not receive an increment before the first day of September next following
(c) Reclassification Due to Additional Qualifications
(i)

A teacher, whose qualifications are improved and as a result of those improved qualifications is entitled by virtue of the application of Article 9.02 of this Collective Agreement to a higher class, shall be paid a basic salary determined as follows: the basic salary for the new class and the years of teaching experience of the teacher provided the following conditions apply:

(1) The teacher has provided the Division, by registered mail, or other form, receipt of which has been acknowledged in writing by the Division, with evidence of successful completion of studies which would result in a change of classification, and
(2) The teacher has provided evidence to the Division that the request for change in classification has been made to Manitoba Education and Advanced Learning.
(3) When the Division has received notification from Professional Certification and Student Records Unit, Manitoba Education and Advanced Learning, confirming a teacher’s change in classification, the teacher so affected shall receive such payment effective from the first day of the month following the notification period listed in (a) and (b) above. In cases where there is a difference in notification dates between (a) and (b) above then the later of the dates shall be used for the purposes of a salary change to a new classification.
NOTE: For (a) evidence shall be the copy of confirmation of successful completion of courses from the appropriate educational institution.

For (b) evidence shall be the verification of the date confirmation of successful completion of courses was submitted to the Professional Certification and Student Records Unit, Manitoba Education and Advanced Learning.

(ii) Notwithstanding the foregoing, the following time lines will apply when evidence of entitlement to reclassification due to additional qualifications is filed:

Where evidence of entitlement to reclassification due to qualifications is obtained prior to September 1st in any year and is filed by the teacher in September or October that year, the teacher shall be entitled to reclassification as and from September 1st of that year.
Where evidence of entitlement to reclassification due to additional qualifications obtained prior to June 1st is filed by July 31st, payment of the change in salary shall be made retroactive to June 1st of that year.
Where evidence of entitlement to reclassification due to additional qualifications obtained prior to January 1st is filed by the last teaching day of February, payment of the change of salary shall be retroactive to January 1st of that year.
The onus is on the teacher to provide evidence of his/her qualifications and experience to Manitoba Education and Advanced Learning and the Division.
(d) Reclassification Due to a Change in Evaluation or a Re-evaluation of Qualifications
A teacher who is entitled to a higher classification due to a change in evaluation or a re-evaluation of the teacher’s qualifications, shall be paid from the effective date the Professional Certification and Student Records Unit of Manitoba Education and Advanced Learning approves such change in classification, a basic salary as determined in Article 9.05 (c) provided, however, that in no case shall the effective date of the new salary rate be more than one (1) year prior to the first day of the month in which the Division is notified by the teacher or Manitoba Education and Advanced Learning of the change in classification.
(e) Placement of Teachers of Vocational Subjects
On initial engagement teachers holding a vocational certificate in vocational subjects or Letters of Authority in vocational subjects, may at the discretion of the School Division be advanced up to two (2) increments on the applicable basic salary schedule above the applicable initial salary at which point they will remain until they are entitled to the second or third increment as the case may be, after which they will begin regular progress on the Basic Schedule.

9.06
Part‑time Teachers and Pro Rata of Allowance

(a) The Basic Salary of each teacher employed under contract on a part-time basis shall be pro rata of the applicable annual schedule rate and shall be governed by the same provisions as the salary of any other teacher covered by this Agreement inclusive of vacation pay.
(b) Pro Rata of Allowance
Where an employee is not assigned to a position on a full-time basis, then the allowance or applicable rate of pay for that position will be prorated for the amount of time the employee is assigned, on a daily basis, to that position.
(c) Part time teachers who participate in professional development activities, school opening administration day, and parent-teacher interviews during the instructional school day when requested by the Principal and approved by the Superintendent shall receive per diem or portion thereof for time spent over and above their regularly scheduled teaching time during the instructional school day. Time in lieu of compensation may be given if mutually agreed upon between the teacher and the Principal.

9.07
Payment of Salaries

Effective September 1, 2010, notwithstanding any other provision of the Collective Agreement, the annual salary rates payable to all employees covered by this Collective Agreement will be payable for the portion or portions of each school year in any given calendar year on the basis of one-twenty-fourth (1/24th) of the annual salary rate payable for each of the months of September to August inclusive. Any subsequent adjustment payable under this clause, or related to termination of service, will be paid in accordance with this article.

Except as may be provided for elsewhere in this Agreement, teachers will be paid on the following basis:

(i) Those teachers who teach the full school year, will be paid on the basis of twenty-four (24) more or less equal installments, less deduction at one two-hundredth (1/200th) for any days for which salary is not payable, each installment to be payable on or before the 15th and on the last banking day of each of the months of September to August, both inclusive;
(ii) Those teachers who teach only the fall term or portion thereof, will be paid on the basis of one-twenty- fourth (1/24th) of the applicable annual salary rate for each full semi-monthly period, or a portion of one- twenty fourth (1/24th) of the applicable annual salary rate for the portion or percentage of each semi- monthly period taught. For each month the teacher is employed in the months of September to December, one-twenty fourth (1/24th) of the annual salary or portion thereof will be payable on or before the 15th and the last banking day of the month and a final adjustment will be payable based on the following formula:

Number of equivalent full days taught in Fall Term

Number of equivalent full days previously paid for Fall Term

x  Annual Salary Rate for Fall Term

________________________________________________
Number of teaching days in school year

(iii) Those teachers who teach the full school year and whose contract is amended to change the percentage of time taught during the school year will be paid on the basis of twenty-four (24) more or less equal installments each payable on or before the 15th and on the last banking day in each of the months of September to August and a final adjustment payable on the basis of the following formula, provided that the teacher has service for a portion of the Spring Term for which salary is payable:

Number of equivalent full days taught in school year

Number of equivalent full days previously paid for school year

x  Annual Salary Rate for Spring Term

________________________________________________
Number of teaching days in school year

(iv) A teacher who does not teach the full school year (September to June) but continues to be employed by the Division to the end of the then current school year, following a leave of absence for maternity, will be deducted for any absence during the maternity leave at the rate of one two-hundredth (1/200th) of annual salary for each day of absence.
(v) A teacher who does not teach a full school year (September to June), or is employed on a limited term contract shall be paid a salary based on one-twelfth (1/12th) of the annual salary for each full month of service and a portion of one-twelfth (1/12th) of the annual salary for each portion or percentage of a month of service. These payments shall be made in two (2) more or less equal parts on the15th and on the last banking day of the month.

At the conclusion of the limited term contract or period of employment the teacher shall be paid a final adjustment in accordance with the formula in 9.07 (ii) if the teacher has worked only in the Fall Term or 9.07(iii) if the teacher has service for a portion of the Spring Term for which salary is payable.

(vi) For the purpose of calculations in Clause 9.07 (ii) and (iii), number of equivalent full days previously paid for Fall Term or School Year will be calculated by dividing the salary paid for the period by the daily rate of pay calculated by dividing the annual salary rate on the last day worked by the number of teaching days in the school year.

9.08
Direct Deposit of Salaries

(i) The Division shall only be required to deposit the salary funds to one designated financial institution per teacher. For purposes of clarity, a teacher will not be allowed to designate a certain portion of their funds be paid to one financial institution and the balance to another.
(ii) Any administrative costs in future changes to a designated financial institution shall be borne by the member of the Association who requests such a change.
(iii) Individual members shall not have the right to request exemptions from having their salaries so deposited.
