14.01 Salary Schedules
Provisions Governing the Application of the Salary Schedule Set Forth in Article 13.01 shall be as follows:
(a) Initial Salary and Increments for Consultants
(i) Upon first appointment to a consultant position a teacher shall be placed on the salary scale at a step which provides for a minimum increase of $7,634.00 effective the first day of fall term 2018, and $7,740.00 effective first day of the fall term, 2019, and $7,778.00 effective the first day of the fall term 2020, and $8,034.00 effective the first day of the fall term 2021 (unless limited by the maximum for the position) or the minimum for the position whichever shall be the greater.
(ii) The Division will upon initial appointment of a person referred to in Article 13.02(a)(i) pay an initial starting salary which is the greater of the salary determined in Article 13.02(a)(i) or the minimum for the position plus an amount equal to one (1) annual increment, except as may be limited by the maximum for the position, for each year of consultant experience obtained in the seven (7) years immediately prior to the effective date of the initial appointment.
(iii) In the case of a person who is not a teacher within the meaning of the Public Schools Act and who is appointed a consultant, the Division may pay any mutually agreed salary to that person provided that: 1. There shall be notification to and discussion with the Association; and 2. The employment of such persons will be governed by all applicable terms and conditions set out in the Collective Agreement.
(iv) A principal or vice-principal appointed as a consultant will receive the salary for a consultant on the basis of their appointment to a consultant position as established in Article 13.01. Principals or vice-principals, on the termination of their appointment as a consultant, will return to a position with the Division at the same salary and benefits as a principal or vice-principal would be entitled to receive, had they remained in the position immediately prior to their appointment as a consultant.
(v) A person who is appointed as a part-time consultant will be paid a salary equal to the amount they would receive under Article 13.01 prorated for the amount of time they are assigned as a consultant. A consultant will, if appointed to a position covered by this Collective Agreement and which is not that of a consultant, receive the salary for that position to which they are appointed prorated for the amount of time they are assigned. The Division will provide such additional assistance as may be agreed to between the Division and a principal or vice-principal while they are acting as a consultant on a part-time basis. The Division shall notify the Association of the arrangement made between the Division and a principal or vice-principal as the case may be.
