Working Conditions Memo
All supervisors received an updated memo earlier this fall detailing your work hours, who you report to in a school (not a teacher), and other pertinent information about your job duties. Please refer to it if your supervisor doesn’t know the the difference between PSSP members and CUPE members in your school or is not following the conditions listed in the memo. Print a copy from the link below to refer to when you’re unsure of your role/duties/responsibilities.
All PSSP members work a 7 hour day. School-based staff have difficulty, at times, scheduling breaks/lunch due to the high-risk students they supervise. It is important to remember that you are expected to take a 30 minute “rest” break each day. You can combine your two paid 15 minute breaks for a lunch period and work a 7 hour day. If you would like to take a lunch period and your two 15 minutes breaks, you will work a 7.5 hour day. Consult with your school supervisor to work out the schedule.
