As you all know by now, we have signed a 5-year salary settlement with scale increases of 0, 0, 3, 3, and 3 percent for the period 1 May 2010 to 30 April 2015. The annual merit increases will be processed as usual in all five years.
Since 1999, the Faculty Association of the University of Waterloo (FAUW) has purchased an annual membership in Grad House for all who pay dues. This began as a means to assist the Grad House in a time of financial difficulty and equated to roughtly 1$/person or $1,000/year.
The Grad House is no longer offering this membership plan to FAUW as the rate cannot be justified when compared to that paid by Grad students, about 45$/year. Affiliate memberships are available online for 20$/term or by contacting Rose Vogt at rvogt @ uwaterloo.ca
