|Re:||Compensation Update for Confidential, PM, AP and RA / SRA Staff|
Further to my message of April 14, 2016, I am pleased to update you on changes to your compensation.
On June 16th, Business Board approved Compensation increases, and some benefit plan changes, for Confidential, Professional & Managerial (PM) Staff, Advancement Professionals (AP), Research Associates and Senior Research Associates (RA / SRA).
These increases align with existing government legislation and are responsive to the University’s current financial constraints.
Annual merit increases will be within each group’s fixed merit envelope, consistent with the Province’s current compensation restraint legislation. The merit pay will be effective July 1, 2016.
Across the Board (ATB) Increase
Effective, July 1, 2016 Across the Board (ATB) increases of 1.25% for all eligible Confidential, Professional & Managerial Staff, Advancement Professionals, Research Associates and Senior Research Associates will be implemented.
Both increases are based on June 30, 2016 salaries and will be implemented in the July pay. Further processing instructions for Business Officers will be forthcoming.
Effective July 1, 2016, PM 1-5, Confidential staff and RA / SRA’s will have the following changes to the Extended Health Care (EHC) Plan:
- Coverage added for eye exams to $110 / person / 24 months.
- Paramedical benefits increase from $700 / year to $850 combined maximum / person / plan year.
The EHC plan premium will increase slightly in July 2016, to reflect this change.
Effective January 1, 2017, the Health Care Spending Accounts for PM 6-9 will be increased to $755 / single and $1550 / family.
Should you have any questions about these benefit or compensation changes, please contact your HR Divisional Office.
