Salary scales as of June 1, 2018 are here.
You may have noticed that the Collective Agreement says the following for this year’s increase: “By the same percentage as the Quebec Government Salary Policy (April 2018) on June 1st, 2018”
This is because at the time that we were negotiating the Collective Agreement, we chose to match it to the public sector salary increase which turned out to be 2.0%.
Most MUNACA members can verify their salary increase by comparing the step rate they had in the 2017 salary scale with the step rate (one step higher) in the June 2018 salary scale, up to the maximum of the scale.
If your PED received a Pay Equity adjustment, find your PED on the left hand column, and then look to the appropriate step. If your PED did not receive a Pay Equity adjustment, find your level (grey rows) on the left hand column, and then look to the appropriate step.
Special rules apply for some members (for example, those who are still secured on old scales) or for those who still need to forego their first progression increase in order to compensate for the Summer Fridays (see article 23.11).
Example 1: The MUNACA member works in PED 34 (Level 9, Pay Equity adjusted) and was paid at step 5 in 2017. The rate was $25.53. He will be paid at step 6 in 2018. The new rate is $26.83. This means an increase of 5.0% (2.0% for economic and 3% for progression in step).
Example 2: The MUNACA member works in PED 169 and was paid at step 12 in 2017. The rate was $32.72. She will be paid at step 12 in 2018. The new rate is $33.37. This means an increase of 2.0% (economic only since the employee is already at the maximum of the scale).
The salary increases take effect on June 1st, so members will see a small increase in their first pay (as this pay period is only partially after the increase is applied); their second pay will reflect the increase of a full pay period.
