We are often asked what the per session (overtime) pay rate is for teachers under the current contract. Below we have copied the pay rate for per session right from the contract. It is from Article 15.
The per session pay rate is the same whether the teacher is a first year teacher or someone with 22 years experience and a Masters with 30 additional credits. I believe it is also below what the hourly rate would be for teachers if we were paid for extra time at a pro rated basis. Forget about overtime being paid at time and a half as we are not eligible for that kind of overtime.
It is still a decent rate and since the UFT won a court case years ago to make it pensionable, per session pay is not high on the list of things that need to be fixed.
