When your pay isn't reflective of what you are worth
Ann Leba, now a SPEEA member, knew she wasn’t earning market-leading wages and was lagging behind in her salary when she worked non-union. She has four master’s of science degrees, and still wasn’t receiving sufficient pay increases.
One of the benefits of having union representation is the right to salary and other benefit information from our employers. SPEEA has experts who monitor the data to ensure terms of the contracts are met.
SPEEA uses this data to compile salary charts by major organization, occupation, job family and Skill Management Code (SMC), if more than 25 individuals populate the code. The charts are based on data provided by employers.
Salary charts reflecting raises for the SPEEA-represented employees are used as a tool for SPEEA members to see how their careers are progressing and to help them in conversations with their managers.
