Problems with the current model

Currently, 1 in 5 employees are not eligible to receive any increase in pay because they have reached or exceeded the current salary maximum.

How the New Model Would Fix This

The new model expands the current salary range structure from 6 phases to 13. This offer more room for salary growth including about 20% of employees who have reached or exceeded the current salary maximum.

The top phase of the new model it would be $49.07/hour where the current model is curently $41.82/hour.

Highlights of the new model

 No employee’s salary will be reduced as a result of this new model.

Employees with salary below the market rate will see a larger increase

Salary ranges reduce the need for time-consuming position review processes

Provides the opportunity for a merit system to be introduced in the future

No other changes to terms and conditions unless separately negotiated in the collective bargaining process

How Salaries Would Be Determined

  • The university would look at comparable jobs in both the public and private sector to determine market rates, the same as all other employee groups at the university
  • The university determines the market rate for your position using salary surveys that we subscribe to. This analysis for your position occurs on an annual basis
  • This allows the university to offer salaries that are competitive both locally and regionally
  • Your salary will not fluctuate year-to-year or be reduced as a result of the new model. Increases to your salary will occur via the regular increments and negotiated increases
