Once the tentative agreement has been ratified we will move forward with the increases. In the meantime we are making preparations to process the increases in successive order. It is anticipated that the 2016 Progress Through the Ranks and General Wage Increases will be processed in the fall of 2017. The 2017 and 2018 increases will follow thereafter. At this time we are unable to provide specific dates, but we will be working as quickly as we can to process all increases. As soon as a schedule has been established Faculty Relations will communicate this information.
Reappointments: Keep in mind that as we move forward with the increases HRMS will be frozen for periods of time. As such administrators should ensure that they have processed reappointment paperwork as early as possible for any term positions that have an end-date within the next 6 months. Keep in mind that the 2018 increases will be processed in time for the 2018 July 15th paycheque therefore reappointments for appointments ending June 30, 2018 must be processed as early as possible in 2018 and not later than 2018 March 31st.
Merit & PSA for 2016 & 2017: By now eligible faculty members should have provided their annual reports and the merit & PSA process within each department should have commenced. Departments should not wait until their receive notice of their merit & PSA amounts to make rankings.
Career Progress, Merit & PSA values: The calculation of the July 1, 2016 value is underway and the values will be provided to each Dean’s Office as early as possible. The calculation of the July 1, 2017 value cannot commence until after the July 1, 2016 increases have been completed, however the 2017 Career Progress and Length of Service CP has been loaded to HRMS. An email has already been sent to Dean’s Office administrators informing them of the steps to take to check the accuracy of the data.
