We got our first paycheck of our new contracts today... mine went up $130 a month because I went up on the step scale. I went down to the payroll office at the BOE because I knew the amount I made was WAY too low. Turns out, I'm not getting extended day yet because no one in the county is. The "board" hasn't approved the extended day budget yet. So, I said to the payroll lady, "So once the budget is approved, I will be backpayed for all of the days since August 3 that I've worked on extended day?" Her reply: "No, we haven't heard anything about back paying."
WHAT!!?!? That's illegal. They aren't paying anyone who signed a contract for extended day their extended day pay.
On top of all of that, my T6 won't be effective until probably November. I will be back payed until August 5th, though, because that's the day on my diploma.
I happened to run in to my principal at Kroger after I left the board. She reassured me that the lady in payroll is a DA ,and I will be back payed for my extended day. She had no clue this was going on, and she's calling her supervisor tomorrow.
I will be calling PAGE (our insurance/union type organization) if they give me the shaft on this.
Good news- I thought the amount I was paid this month included my extended day, so I will be making that plus my T6 level pay... eventually... which will mean about $600 net more a month.
