The public consultation is during the busy month of December and ends during Xmas holidays. SNEAKY!!
Doctors have had either pay cuts of wage freeze for many many years now. These doctors work weekend, nights, Christmas week, summer etc etc etc.
All these “associate directors” and superintendents who just wander around from school to school for photo ops etc want 5% or more raises!!!!
Don’t tell me that Ontario (with its HUGE deficit) is underfunding education. These huge exec raises and taking away the possibility of special ed teachers, air conditioning for some schools, etc etc etc
Tell me ONE OCSB exec that has left the OCSB for the private sector. NONE! None of them could get such a high paying job with pay, benefits, vacation and pension.
Average raises for taxpayers are averaging around 2%, not in excess of 5%. And these pay increases may be “revisited” when teachers and principals get more raises from Wynne (as they always d0)
Paying a Superintendent $194K (with a pension of 70%) is obscene. This is a social justice issue!
Declining enrollment and skyrocketing costs!
