When I began working as an Educational Assistant six years ago, I made about $7.50 an hour. Now I make almost $12.00 with more raises on the way, primarily thanks to the hard work of our Union reps.
Also, I hope you all know that if you take classes at CNM, you can submit your grade of C or better to APS and they will reimburse the cost of your classes AND books!
Last year I enrolled in an online college because it was more convenient for my personal situation, so I get to submit proof of the 45 credits I have earned to APS by September 15th. In return, I will receive a retroactive salary increase based on my increased education.
If our Tier salary had passed like the teachers' did, my salary would increase to about $20,000 a year! Join our Union and help us to achieve that goal!
