TRURO - More money will be given to some Chignecto-Central Regional School Board employees.

CCRSB officials confirmed at a school board meeting on Wednesday night that eligible non-union staff is receiving a two per cent raise.

"The total cost is $37,000, plus benefits, and half of that, or one per cent of it, will be covered by the province," Valerie Gauthier, director of financial services, told media at the meeting.

The increase is retroactive to April 1 of last year, confirmed Gauthier, and will be given to about 60 staff, specifically management and executive assistants, and is a "one-year only mandate," said Gauthier.

She added those receiving the raise did not have one in 2010 or 2011 while unionized members, including those in the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE), Nova Scotia Government and General Employees Union (NSGEU) and the Nova Scotia Teachers Union (NSTU), were given a two per cent raise.

The directive was given to all school boards by the Treasury Board through the province's Department of Education.

    37,000 for 60 management staff ....not much of a bounce there Valerie ! don't seem quite right to me since most of these people would be making 70 or 80 grans a year ..and 2% of that would be ....??? a bit more than the 37000/60 which is about $ 600 ..... new math ...again Valerie !

    No surprise here. It will be comforting to the children in need who go without EA support, and can't have adequate access to school librarys to know that school board employees got a raise.
