Ingrid Cumberbatch commented on Association of Early Childhood Educators Ontario (AECEO) Submission to the Standing Committee on Finance and Economic Affairs regarding Bill 148: Fair Workplaces, Better Jobs Act, 2017 2017-12-01 18:18:08 -0500I couldn’t agree more with your findings. Also, I have seen many daycares advertise for RECE’S to work split shifts. From 7 – 9 then to return from 2 till 6 pm. This may work for those applicants who live in the neighborhood where the daycare exists, but these spots are hard to fill for the most part, as the extra travel time in between shifts means there is no rest or downtime for the employee.
By signing below you are showing support for the professional pay for professional work campaign and will receive updates!
The overarching goal of this campaign is to address the long-standing issue of low and inequitable compensation for early childhood educators (ECEs) in Ontario. We are calling on the government to fund professional pay for all ECEs in Ontario regardless of where they work. Professional pay should reflect ECEs’ specialized training, the value of their work and their participation in continuous professional learning.
No ECE should have to work for less than a professional wage and all ECEs should be recognized for their professional qualifications and practice.
