(Note: This memo was sent to Faculty/Department Administrators with individualized departmental spreadsheets. Only the memo is being reproduced on the HR website.)

This provides an update on the M&P Compensation Review implementation, and is further to our memo of January 23, 2013 (

We are targeting April 15, 2013, for implementation of changes resulting from the M&P Compensation Review. This includes salary grade changes, salary adjustments, and retro payments (back to Jan. 1, 2013), where applicable. Note that there is a possibility that this may be delayed due to other collective agreement implementations that are also occurring at this time.

Attached is a spreadsheet that lists the M&P staff in your faculty/department whose salary grades and/or salary will change as a result of the Compensation Review. Also attached is a list of definitions that will assist you in interpreting information from the spreadsheet.

If changes/corrections to your spreadsheet are required, please notify Stuart Murray (, 604-822-2481) by Tuesday, April 2, 2013, at the latest.

HR will be sending individual memos to M&P staff members whose salary grade and/or salary are affected by the Compensation Review. The target date for these memos is April 26. M&P staff members whose salary grade and salary will not be impacted will not receive a memo.
