    Workload Overage Pay

    Article 8 in the 2016-2019 PAT Agreement has language that defines workload “thresholds” for class-size, teaching load, caseload, and the number of unique course preparations. This language requires overload pay for educators whose workload exceeds those thresholds. Overage pay for the second semester is based on workload levels on Tuesday, February 19th.

    If you are due workload overage pay for second semester, you should expect to receive overage pay in a separate check on March 29th. You should not need to take any action to get your overage pay, as the District determines overage payments based on information in Synergy and with corroboration from building administrators. However, if you do not receive the overage pay you deserve on your March paycheck, you need to fill out this form created by PPS Human Resources.

    In case evidence is needed, continue to save screenshots of your class lists and/or course lists on Synergy from February 19th.

The Bargaining Committee will be a larger group than the Bargaining Team, and will likely require less time than serving on the Bargaining Team. Members of the Bargaining Committee can expect to meet regularly, beginning this spring, while PAT is developing bargaining proposals, and throughout the bargaining process.
