The collective agreement on the temporary transition of educators (4 of 2018) was supported because it will ensure uniform application in all provinces, most of which already have their own collective agreements in this regard, with different wait times for transformation. The following collective agreements have recently been concluded within the ELRC: Members should take note of Collective Agreement 3 of 2018, as it concerns disciplinary proceedings for educators accused of sexual misconduct towards learners. So far, an educator so accused would have been placed before an internal disciplinary hearing of the service, according to which the educator, if convicted, can appeal the result while remaining on duty. If the educator was dismissed at the end of the appeal process, he/she could file a dispute with the ELRC. For the purposes of the new Agreement, in such cases, the internal procedure and the appeal procedure shall be abolished. The case is now being heard directly by the ELRC. Collective Agreement 2 of 2018 replaces the JLP`s current provisions regarding the re-recommendation of educators after a period of service. For the purposes of the MAP provision, an educator who, after a break, is reassessed at the same level of position, must be appointed to the same salary function (or equivalent position) that he or she held prior to the period of service. A pedagogue re-elected at a lower level loses 6 taps for each level of position lower than that occupied by the educator before the break (all appointments are limited to a certain level per postal level).
