Your pay and conditions
CRTs are employed directly by school councils, not by the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development. Their conditions of employment, including wages and grievance procedures, are set out in Ministerial Order 200.
Increases in CRT rates
Casual Relief Teacher (CRT) rates of pay and conditions are covered by Ministerial Order 200 and negotiations for this Order occured in 2013. The pay rates for CRTs have been increased in line with the percentage rises obtained for G1 teachers.
|Date||% Increase||CRT daily rate||CRT hourly rate|
As with the Schools agreement, pay rises will occur in two separate rises every year, one in February and another in August. The rises mean that CRTs will receive pay rises greater than the 2.5% offered by the Government (2013 – 2.6%, 2014 – 4.6%, 2015 – 3.5%).
These rates became effective from July 29, 2013.
The AEU is now contacting CRT agencies to inform them of the pay rise and the expectation that they will increase rates of pay accordingly.
