Salary grid - actual earnings


Will I make back salary lost during job action when we get a settlement?
In 2005 teachers across BC stood together to demand a fair deal with government. Teachers withdrew service for two weeks and sacrificed income. The following charts detail the experience for a member at category 5 maximum in 05/06.
