All PSSP members work a 10 month year and are laid off during school holiday periods. We are paid over 12 months but are not earning money in July and August – merely receiving our banked earnings taken from our pay during the previous 10 months. If you work the school year plus 3 days you are paid for those additional days during the December school holiday so cannot apply for EI during that period. You can apply each March break and summer holiday IF you are at home and available for work during those periods as per Employment Insurance rules and regulations.

On June 4, 2013 we held our AGM at The Latvian Centre, 4 Credit Union Drive from 4:45 to 7 pm. This was an election year so all Executive positions were up for election. All Executive members who ran for office were re-elected. We have a new member as Treasurer, Veronica Montague. The budget and all On Time motions were passed at the AGM.
Many budget lines were reduced and a few increased to reflect the spending patterns of the past year. The total budget comes in several thousand dollars less than last year’s budget. The books will be closed in the summer as our fiscal year ends on June 30. A report of the books will be made at our September Executive Meeting.
The office will be open for the first two weeks in July and then closed for the summer until August 19 when we begin the 2013 – 2014 school year. If you require assistance during the summer holiday, please contact Provincial Office and identify yourself as a District 12, PSSP member at 416/751-8500.
