I was just showing some Canada post jobs as examples as there seemed to be some disagreement as to what there currently paying . you seemed to be claiming its rather low but all the postings I saw were for at least $16 to $19 an hour

sure there is jobs that pay more than $19 an hour in many major cities but when you look at whats available in a small rural town . $19 an hour is very high , the people working at the local wal mart or dollar store are only making $11 or minimum wage

( more teachers are making over $100,000 a year than ever before , with wynne and the unions in charge its turning into a big money profession )


Since Wynne became premier number of teachers on Sunshine List nearly tripled, costing taxpayers $765M


Victor Ferreira | April 12, 2017 6:59 PM ET
More from Victor Ferreira | @VicF77
.
Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne pauses during a speech in Ottawa on April 30, 2015.

THE CANADIAN PRESS/Justin TangOntario Premier Kathleen Wynne pauses during a speech in Ottawa on April 30, 2015. .



The number of Ontario teachers earning more than $100,000 a year has nearly tripled under Premier Kathleen Wynne, according to a National Post analysis, and that’s before new contracts guaranteeing a four per cent raise kick in.

In 2014 — one year after Wynne succeeded Dalton McGuinty — 2,517 people listed as teachers made the so-called Sunshine List of public servants earning six figures. Two years later, that number rose to 7,066. The Toronto District School Board had the largest increase, ballooning to 1,022 teachers on the list from fewer than 200 three years ago.

As a result, taxpayers were left with a $765-million bill to pay the salaries of the teachers who made the list in 2016, compared with $263 million in 2014.

“The unions keep screaming poverty and saying their teachers are underpaid,” said Christine Van Geyn, Ontario director of the Canadian Taxpayers Federation. “It’s hard to keep making that argument when you see so many people on the Sunshine List.

“It’s disturbing.”

Of the 62 school boards with teachers on the list for the past three years, 34 saw their numbers increase each year. Only two boards — Algoma District School Board and Ottawa Catholic School Board – had decreases across the three-year span. While the TDSB had the largest increase in terms of the number of teachers, three others grew sevenfold: Durham District, Halton District and Simcoe County District. The Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board’s numbers multiplied by eight over three years, from 44 teachers in 2014 to 361 teachers in 2016.


Aaron Vincent Elkaim/The Canadian PressA 2012 rally organized by the Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario. .

The National Post analyzed the past three Sunshine Lists, organizing the names of those listed as teachers and teacher consultants by each individual school board in Ontario and adding their salaries and benefits. Those classified as principals, coordinators or any other titles were not included. However, some union officials such as Ontario Secondary School Teachers Federation president Paul Elliott still appear on the list as a “teacher” because their salaries are paid by individual school boards before being reimbursed. Six of the 50 highest-earning “teachers” on the 2016 list fall into this category.

Ann Hawkins, president of the Ontario English Catholic Teachers’ Association, said the numbers don’t surprise her because the Sunshine List continues to use “outdated criteria.” Some critics, like Hawkins, consider the list, with 37 teachers who earned $150,000, to be flawed because it’s not indexed to inflation. If the numbers were adjusted, only public-sector employees earning $147,219 would make the list.


Wayne Cuddington/ Ottawa Citizen

Wayne Cuddington/ Ottawa CitizenPaul Elliott, president of OSSTF.

“It’s not clear whose interests are being served by publicizing information based on severely outdated criteria,” Hawkins wrote in an emailed statement.

The reason teachers make the Sunshine List despite a maximum salary of $95,794 is because they take on additional duties such as summer school courses or hold higher positions such as department heads.

But both Elliott and the Ministry of Education attribute the inflated numbers to a one-time payout established in the 2014-2017 collective agreements that allowed teachers to cash in on banked sick days before retirement for a discounted rate.


(Wynne) is tracking at 12 per cent in the polls. She can’t afford for a bloc not to come out. She’s going to spend our money to buy that support
.
Before 2012, Ontario teachers were able to bank unused sick days until retirement, when they could cash them in for a maximum of half of a year’s salary. McGuinty stopped the practice and, according to the government, saved $1.6 billion over three years.

As part of the deal, eligible teachers had the choice of cashing in, but losing 7.5 per cent for every year they were away from retirement, Elliott said.

“That might have been an anomaly for the year,” he said. “The only thing I can think of was that gratuity payout.”


Veronica Henri/Toronto Sun/Postmedia Network

Veronica Henri/Toronto Sun/Postmedia NetworkOSSTF protest on the front lawn of Queen's Parkon Thursday May 14, 2015. Collective bargaining hits an impasse for teachers on strike at three boards - Rainbow, Durham and Peel. .

Teacher salaries are determined by their rank on an 11-step grid that they are able to climb based on every year of experience they gain in a permanent position and their qualifications. According to the Ministry of Education, the average salary for Ontario’s 170,000 teachers is about $88,000. For teachers earning $95,794 (without benefits), the payouts could’ve resulted in a boost that would have pushed them over the $100,000 mark.

The payouts are a central part of the current agreements, which also include a 1.5 per cent raise over three years and an additional one per cent lump-sum payment. The deals were reached after a tense round of negotiations with the province in 2015 that dragged out for months and saw teachers launch a work-to-rule campaign.

.
For teachers at the top of the grid, this would have resulted in a $1,900 raise. Elliott said that if the raise had been significant enough, up to 20,000 additional teachers at the top of the grid would’ve made the list.

But the Wynne government was already increasing spending on teachers two years before these agreements were signed. In January 2013, the government lifted a freeze on teacher salaries; Wynne’s political opponents accused her of catering to a powerful bloc of voters one year before an election. According to the auditor general’s report in 2014, that move resulted in Wynne handing $468 million back to teachers. Six months later, the government agreed to boost the salaries of teachers under the Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario by two per cent.



After the Liberals won a majority government in 2014, Wynne said there would be “no new money for compensation increases” for teachers. One year later, the current agreements were ratified.

With a provincial election set for June 7, 2018 — and the Liberals dead last in early polling — the number of teachers on the 2017 Sunshine List may be set for another plateau.

Last week, the Ontario Secondary School Teachers Federation became the last of the education unions to ratify agreements that will take them through 2019. Over two years, teachers and support staff across the board are set to see a salary increase equal to four per cent, Elliott confirmed.

“It definitely helps, there’s no doubt about that,” said Elliott, who said teachers’ salaries had fallen behind inflation. “It allows us to keep up with inflation.”


Stan Behal/Toronto Sun/QMI Agency

Stan Behal/Toronto Sun/QMI AgencyTeachers demonstrate their dismay with the current government as Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne speaks to the Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario annual meeting, where she was greeted coolly , at the Harbour Castle Westin in Toronto, Ont. on Wednesday August 13, 2014..

Before the bargaining started, Wynne lifted the “net-zero” provision for public-sector employees. That means when new deals are being negotiated with public servants, the government is no longer required to offset the additional spending by finding savings elsewhere.

Van Geyn called both the new agreements and the removal of the net zero provisions “predictable” because of the upcoming election.

“(Wynne) is tracking at 12 per cent in the polls,” Van Geyn said. “She can’t afford for a bloc not to come out. She’s going to spend our money to buy that support.

“That’s what the Sunshine List tells us this year.”
