Dental benefits increase in January

The University of Waterloo dental plan currently reimburses 80% of the cost of basic expenses as set out in the Ontario Dental Association (ODA) fee guide from two years ago (up to an annual maximum). Effective for treatments starting January 1, 2019, this reimbursement is increasing to 95% of the ODA’s current fee guide.

The move from the two-years-old fee guide to the current fee guide also affects major dental work and orthodontic work. Reimbursement for these costs should increase by 4-8%.

Proposal to change FAUW dues structure passes

fair dues are coming. thank you for voting.

Last week, Faculty Association members voted to change how we calculate dues. Currently, each faculty member represented by FAUW pays 0.525% of the average base salary for faculty members at their rank. Starting in the new year, each faculty member will pay 0.525% of their own base salary, which makes for a more equitable distribution of dues and brings FAUW in line with other faculty associations. We expect Human Resources to implement this change in January 2019.
