Substitution and temporary promotion


The rules governing pay progression for substitutions and temporary promotions (i.e. limited term appointments at a higher grade) are the same as for permanent promotions.

Employees in post prior to the effective date of the Agreement on former pay rates and who are temporarily in a higher grade retain the former pay rates and other terms and conditions if they: 

  1. are permanently promoted to the same grade which they held temporarily, with a break of service of one month or less or
  2. return to their former substantive position/grade in which case they will be credited for any increments earned during the period of the LTA
