The University and the Faculty Association will be proceeding to interest arbitration on October 20 to 22, 2015. The Arbitration Panel is composed of Colin Taylor, Q.C.; Dr. Judith Osborne; and Dr. Michael Conlon. In the meantime, the parties have signed a Memorandum of Agreement that itemizes the proposals on which agreement has been reached, the proposals the parties have mutually agreed to withdraw and the matters still in dispute that the parties may submit to arbitration for resolution. For more information, please visit the Faculty Relations’ Bargaining Updates website.
2014 Career Progress, Merit & PSA Increases
The Career Progress, Merit & PSA increases, effective July 1, 2014, were processed on the June 30, 2015 paycheque. The processing and distribution of a General Wage Increase, if any, for 2014 & 2015, and the 2015 PTR increases cannot occur until a new Collective Agreement is settled. For more information on bargaining, please see above or visit the Faculty Relations’ Bargaining Updates webpage.
2015 Career Progress, Merit & PSA Increases
Although the process for Career Progress, Merit and PSA increases has wrapped up for 2014, work should have already commenced for 2015. A reminder to administrators: please ask faculty members for an annual summary of activity and CV for the review year (April 1, 2014 to March 31, 2015). Once faculty members have submitted their annual reports, the evaluation process for merit & PSA awards effective July 1, 2015 can begin. Keep in mind that the 2015 Career Progress, Merit and PSA values cannot be calculated and awarded until after the conclusion of the interest arbitration. Note: administrators must have reviewed Career Progress for faculty members and informed Faculty Relations of omissions and errors by August 3, 2015.
