Trustees on Quesnel’s Board of Education are getting a raise

Trustee remuneration was on the agenda at last (Tuesday) night’s monthly meeting.

Board Chair Lisa Boudreau talks about where they landed.

“We came to the decision that we were going to an increase of 4.25 percent.  This is just to match our partner groups.  As we know the cost of living is increasing rapidly.  We thought this was fair and continuing along the times.”

Both CUPE and teachers received the same wage increase.

The increase bumps up the annual pay for the Chair by almost 721 dollars a year to $17,679.76.

The Vice-Chair will get a 665 dollar raise, and the other Trustees will see their pay go up by about 609 dollars annually.

Boudreau noted that they will also see their computer connectivity reimbursement go up from 660 dollars.

“We also increased our tech connectivity reimbursement to 12 hundred dollars a year, so it works out that every Trustee will get 100 dollars a month.  We use our own technology when we do meetings from home, and I think if we’re comparing how much our own internet bills, our phone bills, they’re going up.”

Boudreau says Trustee pay in Quesnel is in line with other communities its size.
