Call for Nominations: UWSA Board Directors and President-elect 

As is the case every fall, the UWSA Board of Directors is looking for new members. The Board is seeking to fill six (6) vacancies. This large number of vacancies is precipitated by the 2021 introduction of our By-law which separated the Board’s nine (9) Directors from our Operations Team (President, President-elect, Past President and employees).

Drop-in Session draw winner

UWSA hosted a virtual Staff Conference Drop-In Session again this year, as part of this year’s Waterloo Staff Conference. Directors and staff were available to answer questions on a wide range of topics including a plan to host regular President drop-in sessions, supporting a wellness spending account rather than the traditional account for benefit allotments, the review status on staff salary anomalies, and the benefits of being a member of the UWSA. Thank you to just over 80 people who took the time to attend!

COVID Campus Climate Survey #3 Results 

As the official voice of University support staff, the UWSA has surveyed its members annually throughout the pandemic. These survey results are used to identify top areas of staff concern so we can direct our support where it is most needed. They also allow us to knowledgably present staff concerns to senior administrators of the University of Waterloo.  

The UWSA exists to represent staff interests, so when you respond to our surveys, you’re making sure your voice is included in decisions impacting staff; thank you.
