Our Pay, Our Way!
SSOs are campaigning to have their pay spread across 52 weeks.
In March, the AEU surveyed SSO members regarding the manner in which they are paid. An overwhelming majority of SSOs who are paid over 40 weeks and in receipt of 16% loading said they would like to be able to choose to have their pay spread over the course of the year.
And why wouldn't they, most people can't afford to be without a pay packet during school and Christmas holidays!
In response, AEU SSO members are calling on DECD to give SSOs who are only paid during term time the option of having their pay spread over the full calendar year.
Read what SSOs are saying about why they need change.
