Local Collective Agreements

The extent to which categories are related to salary scales is entirely a matter for negotiations at the local level. QECO has no authority in the field of salary.  The possible salary implications of the evaluation of a teacher’s qualifications must not in any way influence the decisions of the QECO staff, the Evaluation Council or the Appeals Committee; nor can the QECO administer local qualifications clauses in collective agreements which are at variance with or in addition to the policies as outlined in the QECO Program.

Clauses within local collective agreements  which concern deadlines for retroactive payment for category change, special allowances, etc., are not the responsibility of the QECO.
