I'm a member of SPANZ - why have I not received the latest pay increase?

Members of SPANZ Union will automatically receive pay increases (and back payments where applicable) when they occur.

If you are not a SPANZ Union member please contact your Board as they will have received information around the pay increase via the Ministry or NZSTA.  As a Principal you will be required to sign an IEA (independent employment agreement) to access the increase. 

Please refer to our President's Comments for any updates to members.
