Faculty compensation at Waterloo

Collective bargaining at the University of Waterloo is handled differently from most post-secondary institutions in Ontario and Canada. Compensation negotiations at the University of Waterloo are limited to:

  • the annual scale change in members’ salaries,

  • changes in the salary structure,
  • anomalies and other special salary increases,
  • changes to the Faculty Professional Expense Reimbursement Plan,
  • “other benefits specific to Members” (10.2, Memorandum of Agreement), and
  • changes to benefits defined in University policies and/or administered by the Pensions and Benefits Committee.

All other matters related to the working conditions of our members are negotiated by the Faculty Relations Committee.
