GOODBYE EX-GRATIA AND AUTOMATIC PAY RAISES, HELLO PERFORMANCE RELATED PAY

January 3, 2023

Shane Eikaiwa has come under criticism for its decision to replace its long-standing exgratia system with a new performance-related pay (PrP) system.
The company failed to consult with it`s Union regarding these changes, much in the same way it also pushed through a 0% furlough scheme during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic without seeking input from its employees.
The new PrP system was put together by the Head of the Academic department, Alex Cox last year, who subsequently stepped down from his position, leaving others to deal with the unwanted and controversial new system.
While the company has presented the change as a pay rise, many teachers fear that they will actually see a reduction in their compensation under the new system. This has caused widespread concern among employees, who feel that their hard work and dedication is not being properly recognized and rewarded.
It is also worth noting that Shane Eikaiwa has not given a pay rise to its employees since 1977, despite the rising cost of living in the country. This has led to growing frustration among staff, who feel that they are not being treated fairly.
The decision to introduce the PrP system has been met with a strong backlash from employees, who are calling for the company to reconsider its position and to provide them with the support and compensation that they deserve.
In a statement, a spokesperson for Shane Workers Union said: "It is unacceptable that the company is unwilling to consult with its employees and provide them with the financial support they need. We urge Shane Eikaiwa to recognize the value of its teachers and to provide them with the respect and compensation they deserve."
