The association representing almost 12,000 professionals and supervisors working for the Ontario government claims its recent tentative agreement with the provincial government calls for a 1.83% permanent reduction in compensation.
The association adds that the Catholic teachers deal reduces teacher compensation permanently by 2.5%.
For someone whose total compensation was $40,000, a 1.83% cut would mean giving back $732 each year to your employer. A 2.5% cut would mean giving back $1,000 annually.
The government refers to its proposals as a "wage freeze".
