Bill 115 Remedy Payment Update!

I am happy to share good news!

The Ministry has confirmed the recalculated payment amounts and the school board has advised that qualifying Permanent Employees will receive payment on the March 23rd pay and that qualifying supply/temporary employees will receive payment on the March 30th pay. The payments are now; $611.93 for 1 year and $1223.86 for 2 years. There will be a separate line on your pay stub to indicate the amount paid. The monies received will not be taxed or have deductions, but will appear on a regular pay.

If you are retired or no longer an employee for the SCDSB, the payment will be sent to the banking information that the board has on file and if payment is sent back to the employer a cheque will be mailed out.

You must have worked in the 2012-2013 and/or the 2013-2014 school years to qualify for the Remedy Payment.

President

Bill 115 Settlement Communique

Please read the following communique from OPSEU regarding the status of the Bill 115 settlement payment. While I am extremely disappointed by the news of a further delay, I am pleased that the cause of the delay is a recalculation of eligible members resulting in an increase in monies for those eligible for the damages award. This settlement only includes those that worked in the 2012-2013 and 2013-2014 school years for the SCDSB in an OPSEU position..

Any further questions regarding the settlement can be directed to our Staff Negotiator, Anastasios Zafiriadis, at azafiriadis@opseu.org.

We will communicate when we have more information about the date and final totals.

Sincerely,
Kelly

Bill 115 Remedy and Central Benefit Trust Updates.

Bill 115 Remedy Update 

The Ministry has proceeded with the Transfer Payments to the school boards. OPSEU and the Board are confirming the list of payees with the expectation to have the monies paid by the end of February. As soon as I have received confirmation of payment details I will send an update.  

Bill 115 Remedy is for members of OPSEU who worked for the Simcoe County District School Board in the school years, 2012-2013 and 2013-2014. Please ensure OPSEU and the School Board have your current and up to date information, i.e. mailing address, name changes. If you are a current employee, you are required to update this information with HR at the board when this information changes.   If you are a retired employee please contact OPSEU 330. If you have any questions please contact the office at 705-739-7232 or by email at opseu330@bellnet.ca.  

Benefit Trust  

The next Central Benefit Trust meeting is scheduled for February 14th and an update will be provided following the meeting. As of last week, I, (Kelly), am now representing OPSEU and OCEW on the Central Benefit Trust Committee and will attend the next meeting.  

 

I understand your continued frustration with how slow things have gone, in moving both Agreements to fruition, considering the financial impact both will have. No one would be happier to have these items in place and resolved to their entirety than me.  As both agreements are progressing forward, there aren't changes and updates as often as we would like and please trust that when I have information to share I will and if I am not sharing, I am waiting for an update. Once there is information to share as always, it will be posted on the opseu330.com Website, our Facebook page and Twitter, and an email will be sent to our membership email list. 

 

Sincerely,  

Kelly Martin 
President 

Bill 115 Remedy Update

The Ministry has been provided the member names and payout amounts for those that worked for SCDSB as an OPSEU member in the 2012-2013 and 2013-2014. We are now waiting for the Ministry to advise the school boards and release the funds. Once I receive an update from OPSEU and/or the school board that the Ministry has released the funds and when payout can be expected I will send out another update.
