Achieve contract provisions and total compensation that reflect
the skills, responsibilities, and needs of principals and vice-principals
- Achieve and support the implementation of the regional grids as presented in the BCPSEA/Exempt Staff Compensation Working Group’s report Realities, Risks and Rewards.
- Achieve an improved benefits package for principals and vice-principals.
- Achieve a common provincial contract framework in identified and limited areas.
This goal and its objectives are a continuation of groundwork that has already been accomplished. Its foundation was the compilation of data to provide compelling evidence that there were compensation issues to be addressed. The Exempt Staff Compensation Working Group issued Realities, Risks and Rewards that recommended that salary grids be implemented for principals and vice-principals to provide an appropriate alignment between teacher compensation and the compensation for principals and vice-principals to address thoroughly documented shortfalls. The Report also acknowledged total compensation, which includes benefits. The Association will continue to build relationships and work with its education partners to advance our case for fully-funded adjustments to compensation for our members.
Pursuing a common provincial contract framework in identified and limited areas would ensure a fair standard of treatment for all members in significant areas, such as term and termination. Many employment contract terms would continue to be determined locally in recognition of the uniqueness of the province’s districts. It is also anticipated that achieving limited common provisions would provide better allocation of Association’s legal and contract resources.
