Pay chaos in Maitland-Newcastle

The IEU has called on the Maitland-Newcastle Catholic Schools Office (CSO) to immediately fix pay problems affecting teachers and support staff in Catholic schools.  The Union has been told that hundreds of staff have been underpaid or not paid at all.  The Union understands the cause of the problem is that some schools did not return Commencement Notices to the CSO in time for the pay run this week and so staff changes such as new starts or changes to hours were not processed. Affected staff have not been told when the problems would be rectified but the Union is calling for an immediate pay run. 

If you have been underpaid or not paid at all,  please contact the Union immediately at with your name, school and details of your circumstances with the heading in your email of MN PAYROLL.
