From 8 May 2018, the remuneration of caretakers in charge of 3 or more workers will be incorporated in the calculation of the employee’s pre-translation remuneration rate for translation to the new supervisors’ pay scale detailed in Part 4, according to the agreed translation rules detailed in Appendix D.
