Length of Service CP Awards

The Length of Service (LOS) Career Progress (CP) award was established in 2011 with the first awards being processed effective July 1, 2011.  This financial award is paid to those members eligible for Career Progress Increments (CPI) with service in a CPI eligible rank for 20 and 25 years. The awards are funded through the Career Progress Increments and Performance Salary Adjustments pools.

The LOS CP data should be checked annually for faculty members. Please refer to the LOS CP checking procedures.

The language of the Article is as follows:

“Career Progress Increments for Length of Service (LOS)

a) Effective July 1, 2011, each faculty member eligible for Career Progress will receive 1/3 of a Career Progress Increment (CPI) unit at year 20 and at year 25 of their initial appointment in an eligible rank.

b) For those faculty reaching their 20th and 25th year of appointment on July 1, 2011, the allocation of this length of service CPI unit will be funded from within the CPI pool. Subject to c) below, Career Progress Increments for length of service shall be funded from within the CPI pool.

c) For those faculty who have reached their 20th and/or 25th year of appointment prior to July 1, 2011, their length of service CPI unit shall be equally distributed in each of two years, July 1, 2011 and July 1, 2012, to be funded exactly as the Career Progress Carry Forward’s, to the maximum of the Performance Salary Adjustment pool.

d) It is recognized and acknowledged that this agreement is fully funded from within the Career Progress Increment pool and the Performance Adjustment Pool and requires no additional funding from any source.”

a) Eligibility:

To be eligible a faculty member must be in a rank eligible for CPI awards. Ranks which are not eligible to receive CPI are not entitled to length of service awards. Eligibility is based on continuous service as per the guidelines below.

b) Current year 20 & 25 awards:

Those faculty members reaching 20 or 25 years as of June 30, 2011 will receive the full LOS CP award of 1/3 of a unit. These are separate from the retroactive awards for year 21-24 and years 26 and above and will be funded from the Career Progress Pool.

c) Retro-active Payments for members with LOS greater than 20 and or 25 years:

The “retro” payments (awards for years 21-24 and years 26 and above) will be paid over the next two years; on July 1, 2011 and July 1, 2012, and the member will receive 50% of the portion owed to them in each of those years. The retro payments are funded from the PSA pool in the same way as the Career Progress Carry Forward units.

General Guidelines

For the purpose of calculating placement for LOS CP, service to the University includes:

  • Any time as a faculty member in an eligible rank at UBC; and
  • For UBCO transition faculty, any time served in an eligible rank at OUC is also applicable.

Notes:

  • A break of service of 12 months or one year as a 12 month lecturer will not interrupt “service”.
  • Years spent in a reduced appointment count in full towards service.

For the purpose of calculating LOS, service to the University does not include:

  • Time as a Sessional Lecturer;
  • Unpaid personal leaves of more than two years; or
  • Time spent in a position excluded from the faculty bargaining unit; or
  • Unpaid sick leave after six months and leave under the Income Replacement Program.

Continuous service is not cumulative. If a faculty member ends their employment with the University and returns to an eligible rank at a later date, the start date for their continuous service for the LOS award is their return date.

Calculation of Years of Service

The years of service calculation is based on the academic year July 1 to June 30.

In the following examples assume there are no breaks in service:

  • A member hired between July 2, 1985 and July 1, 1986, has 25 years of service as of June 30, 2011.
  • A member hired between July 2, 1990 and July 1, 1991 has 20 years of service as of June 30, 2011.
  • A member hired on July 2, 1991 has not yet reached 20 years of service as of June 30, 2011; they will receive their 20 year award in 2012.
