Overview

The Province of New Brunswick made a commitment to implement a pay equity program targeting the Transition House Sector that includes all Transition Houses, Second Stage Houses and Outreach Workers.

Eligibility

Transition House Sector that includes all Transition Houses, Second Stage Houses and Outreach Workers.

Description

In New Brunswick, this sector is comprised of Crisis Interveners, Child Support Workers, Outreach Workers and Support Workers.

The program will:
• consult with Transition House Sector and provide regional information sessions;
• establish Joint Steering Committee and Joint Job Evaluation Committee;
• complete job descriptions and job evaluations; and
