1 A1 4.0
2 B2 6.0

5 B5, C4, D3 14.5
6 B6, C5, D4 17.5
7 C6, D5 20.5
8 D6 23.5

The Supervisory Differential is to be used in the following manner:

**

  1. determine the non‑supervisory rate of pay according to level;
  2. determine the Supervisory Differential by multiplying the applicable Supervisory Differential Percentage by the non‑supervisory rate of pay;
  3. determine the supervisory rate of pay by adding the non‑supervisory rate of pay with the Supervisory Differential.

**

For example, an employee on August 5, 2011 at the maximum of level 5 and a Supervisory Coordinate B6, would receive a basic rate of pay of twenty‑five dollars and thirty‑four cents ($25.34) as per Annex A. The Supervisory Differential of four dollars and forty‑three cents ($4.43) is arrived by multiplying the Supervisory Differential Percentage of seventeen decimal five per cent (17.5%) (B6) by the basic rate of pay (non‑supervisory). Therefore in this case the applicable supervisory rate of pay would be twenty‑nine dollars and seventy‑seven cents ($29.77).

The Inmate Training Differential is to be used in the following manner:

**

  1. determine the non‑supervisory rate of pay according to level;
  2. determine the Inmate Training Differential by multiplying the applicable Inmate Training Differential Percentage by the non‑supervisory rate of pay;
  3. determine the inmate training rate of pay by adding the inmate training differential to the non‑supervisory rate of pay as set out in Annex A or to the supervisory rate of pay as set out in Annex B of the Agreement if applicable.

Inmate Training Differential as Applied to a Non‑Supervisory Rate

**

For example, an employee on August 5, 2011, at the maximum of level 5 and a C1 Inmate Training Rating would receive a basic rate of pay (non‑supervisory) of twenty‑five dollars and thirty four cents ($25.34) as per Annex A. The Inmate Training Differential of two dollars and fifty‑three cents ($2.53) is arrived by multiplying the Inmate Training Differential Percentage of ten decimal zero per cent (10.0%) (C1) by the basic rate of pay (non‑supervisory). Therefore in this case the applicable rate of pay would be twenty‑seven dollars and eighty‑seven cents ($27.87) for this particular employee.

Inmate Training Differential as Applied to a Supervisory Rate

**

For example, an employee on August 5, 2011, at the maximum of level 5 with a Supervisory Coordinate B6 and a C1 Inmate training Rating would receive a basic rate of pay (non‑supervisory) of twenty‑five dollars and thirty‑four cents ($25.34) as per Annex A. The Supervisory Differential of four dollars and forty‑three cents ($4.43) is arrived by multiplying the Supervisory Differential Percentage of seventeen decimal five per cent (17.5%) (B6) by the basic rate of pay (non‑supervisory). The Inmate Training Differential of two dollars and fifty‑three cents ($2.53) is arrived by multiplying the Inmate Training Differential Percentage of ten decimal zero per cent (10.0%) (C1) by the basic rate of pay (non‑supervisory). Therefore in this case the applicable rate of pay would be thirty‑two dollars and thirty cents ($32.30) for this particular employee.
