Salaries, Overtime & Other Wages
- Salaries for bargaining unit positions (BCGEU, PEA, Nurses) are negotiated with the unions
- Salaries for excluded management positions are determined by the ministry within salary ranges set by the BC Public Service Agency. Rules for classification and salary decisions for excluded management are explained in the Management Compensation and Classification Framework Compensation Rules. For additional information, see Managing the Job Evaluation Process under the MCCF.
The current salary rate for your classification can be found on the Salary Look-up Tool. Future salary rates, if known, can also be found on the tool.
Most non-management positions have a set schedule for incremental salary increases.
Employees required to temporarily take on the principle duties of a higher-classified position may be eligible for substitution pay.
Temporary Appointment Pay
What happens with your pay when you get the opportunity to work in a different position in order to gain new experiences and skills.
Temporary Market Adjustment
Adjustments to salaries for negotiated jobs are made in order to recruit and retain skilled employees during a labour market shortage.
Provisions are in place to protect your salary in the case of an involuntary demotion.
Fully qualified applicants are not always available for every position. This creates unique opportunities for employees in some jobs to learn as they go.
