At the June 2020 Area Reps meeting with Vice-President Academic & Provost James Rush, a lengthy discussion took place about the regularity of pay for staff at UW. Although changing the pay schedule seemed cumbersome in the past, the introduction of WorkDay made a change more feasible. On August 12, 2020 the Communications and Membership committee sent UWSA members a survey, seeking input on preferred pay schedules. The results are in and will now be sent to the next meeting of Provost Advisory Committee on Staff Compensation.
We at the University of Waterloo Staff Association (UWSA) Communications and Membership Committee hope that you are all staying safe and well.
Are you happy with your pay schedule? We have created a short survey to help determine if there is a desire to change the timeline of current UW employee pay schedules.
Please take a few minutes to fill out this Pay schedule survey. The results will be shared with the Provost’s Advisory Committee on Staff Compensation for their consideration.
