[FAQ] What is surplus staffing?

01 Jul 2022

Some schools will have a surplus staffing and/or surplus salary unit situation at the end of a school year.

Surplus staffing situations happen when there are changes in a school that means fewer staff are needed—for example if two schools merge, or if the roll declines.

Your collective agreement contains provisions for what should happen if you're affected by surplus staffing.

You can learn more about what happens in a surplus staffing situation at the Ministry of Education's website.
