Have just watched the smarmy Ms Parata on Campbell Liv e - get it right Hekia! It is not just TEACHERS who are being affected by the error-ridden Novopay - it is ALL school employees - including administrators, cleaners, caretakers, teacher aides, school librarians ... Get it right Hekia! This is well beyond a joke!!!

Well, this hassle just doesn’t allow people to live normally. Money is a very important part of our life, all of us need to pay bills and feed families and that’s why it’s very important to get your wage in time with no any misunderstandings. There should be an order, teachers teach our children and work hard so I am sure they deserved to get their salary in time with no hassle. All of us have financial commitments such as paying bills, some people need to make payments on their loans or <a href="http://paydayloansat.com/">paydayloans</a> and that’s why it’s extremely important for them to get their salaries with no troubles and inconveniences.

Last term I discovered that MOE staff are not paid by the Novopay system. Maybe we would have more action if they were.
I am also dissappointed in the slow action of the union in supporting it's members. How many other professions would put up with this debacle?

When I rang Novopay this morning, they told me it was breaching the Privacy Act to discuss my pay entitlement with me! I was then told that if I wanted to pursue it further, I had to ring the Ministry of Education to act as an advocate for me. I hung up in disbelief...

Dear Campbell Live - PLEASE keep focus on Novopay. Nobody else seems to care about actually fixing this huge mess and paying people. I got off the phone to Novopay yesterday and cried. The woman who had answered the phone sounded about 12 and so unsure it wasn't funny. Plus she couldn't work a hold button so I could hear the "umm,umm?" going on in the background. Does National really hate teachers this much?

I am also one of the teachers that has had no pay since the beginning of December. I have a baby and a toddler to feed and a mortgage to pay. I have been in contact with the Ministry of Education and toldmthat everyone is too busy to talk to me so can I please put my problem in writing. I have done this - 8 days ago. I have still had no response. I resent my email yesterday and added i would appreciate at least some acknowledgement of my email. I have still heard nothing. We are not being paid, have no money to feed our kids and pay our bills. It has gone on for far too long. It is just not fair. We start back at school in 2 weeks, though with not being paid do I even go? What else can we do? I have had a gutsfull. It has caused such unecessary stress to myself and my family. I bet Novopay all have had a great holiday and Christmas spending all their $ while we have been stressed and left trying to get by! Ill have a great bill for them for all my failed automatic payment transactions and that is just the start!

I have been waiting for my xmas pay which is meant to be about 2500 or there abouts. Every time I phone the ministry of Education (who are meant to be able to sort out people's pay isues) I have to speak to a different person every time and each time I am told "we will look into it". Its empty promise after empty promise with no email or phone contact from anyone about what is happening. I am also owed relieving money from the end of the year and When I asked my school why it had not been paid, they discovered that the report showed that it was taken off me automatically to cover some of what I was overpaid back in August!!! They took it without telling me that's what they were going to do...........and I still wait and hope that I will get my xmas pay! we are all sooooo over this whole thing and something has got to give. It's enough to make teachers want to find another career just so they will be guaranteed a regular correct pay packet every week.

I was due my pay increment in September and have been promised it will come every payround since, today however it's still missing! I'm fortunate that my bank is giving me an interest free overdraft for the time being, but how is it their responsibility? I have two mortgages to pay on my own and as I'm changing roles at the end of this term I'm terrified about what they might stuff up next! Each time they've been informed about my missing money they've told my school that it's up to them to loan me money from their private funds (too bad if they don't have any spare) and that I'll have to wait until the next round.
I wonder if that response would be accepted by our members of parliament if their recent pay increases weren't paid when due?
