Note to prospective Faculty & Librarian members:If you are starting a new job at the University, the salary you agree upon when you start work will not be increase for 1 (one) year, and then it will follow the agreed-upon increases under the Collective Agreement. The salary floors are established as a minimum. If you are considering a job at the University, it is normal to negotiate salaries higher than the salary floors.
Are there any means of increasing my salary beyond the amount in the Collective Agreement?
Four methods exist under the Collective Agreement to increase the salary of an individual.
The first is the Windsor Salary Standard (WSS), Article P, which is based on comparator post-secondary salaries across Ontario by rank as collected by Statistics Canada. During negotiations for the 2011-2014 Collective Agreement, the ranks of AAS and Sessional Lecturers were added to the ranks that receive WSS adjustments.
The Windsor Salary Standard is the median of the average salaries per rank in Ontario. On March 31, 2013 and March 31, 2014 the value of the Windsor Salary Standard for each rank will be computed using the Statistics Canada Data pertaining to the periods July 1, 2011 to June 30, 2012, and July 1, 2012 to June 30, 2013. Where a postive adjustment is warranted there will be a non-retroactive addition to normal salary on May 31, 2013 and June 30, 2014 respectively. The comparator groups for the 2013 and 2014 Windsor Salary Standard vary, and were negotiated in the 2011-2014 Collective agreement. They can be found under Article P.3 in the 2011-2014 Collective Agreement.
For a historical perspective of how the WSS payments have been paid over the last few Collective Agreements, see the bottom of this page.
The second method of increasing salary is through the University Anomalies Fund, Article C. The Faculty Association negotiated a fund of $100,000 to be distributed by an Anomalies Committee in order to correct anomalous salaries based on gender, year of hire, salary inversions, anomalies within disciplines and any other anomalies that may be identified. The University hires an external consultant to statistically analyze internal salaries for these anomalies. The Anomalies Committee will be formed in November 2012 to initiate this analysis, and the Anomalies Fund will pay out on June 30, 2013 to qualified recipients, who will be notified by mail. All faculty and librarians working during the July 1, 2012 to June 30, 2013 academic year are included in the analysis. Those who leave the university as of July 1, 2013 will not receive any retroactive adjustment.
The next two methods for increasing salary are at the discretion of the Provost:
Article J - Market Stipends, allows up to $10,000 to be paid as a stipend until June 30, 2014 if the Provost determines there is a high market demand for persons with the desired credentials or experience, and the demand is a temporary phenomenon.
Article T - The President's Fund, allows the Provost (in consultation with the Dean and Head) to increase the normal salary of up to 8 people a year by an amount not to exceed $10,000. This increase is normally used as a retention incentive.

Eligible members: The Windsor Salary Standard was determined based on salaries between July 1, 2007 and June 30, 2008. Members who are eligible for the WSS would have continued employment with the University past July 1, 2007 and onwards. If July 1, 2007 - June 30, 2008 was your first year of employment at the University, you do not qualify for WSS because at the time your contract was signed, you agreed to that salary for the year July 1, 2007 -June 30, 2008. The payments are mad eon a going-forward basis - in other words, if you left the University anytime before or after June 30, 2008 for other employment or retirement there will be no payments 'owing' to you. Sessional Instructors, Sessional Lecturers and AAS do not qualify for Windsor Salary Standard under the terms of the Collective Agreement.
Librarian members: Calculating the equivalent percentage under Article P.2: The salaries of librarians are tallied for each rank as at June 30, 2008. Each total is divided by the number of librarians at each rank to determine the average salary at each rank. The average librarian salary at each rank is compared to the equivalent average professorial salary at each rank. The ratio of average librarian salary to average professorial salary is determined. Librarians receive the proportion of WSS awarded at each equivalent professorial rank.

Windsor Salary Standard (WSS) - Arbitration concerning the 2002-03, 2003-04 Payments (Last updated: December 13, 2006)
Status: On September 6, 2006 an arbitration was held to have Ryerson removed from the WSS comparator list for 2002-03 and 2003-04. Ryerson was not in the comparator group for over 20 years and the Administration added Ryerson to the list in the second year of a 3-year Collective Agreement, affecting the amount of salary adjustment to members under the Windsor Salary Standard. Windsor Salary Standard payments were already put into base salaries in 2005, but WUFA argued that the inclusion of Ryerson caused some ranks to get less than they were entitled to receive. An agreement was reached on this issue between the Administration and the Faculty Association which settles this case.
Action by WUFA: The following amounts were added to the base salaries of those who were working at the University in 2003 & 2004, and who still worked at the University on December 15, 2006.
Base salary adjustments for 2003:
Full Professors $116.00
Assoc. Prof. 3.50
Assist. Prof. 0*
Librarian IV 101.00
Librarian III 3.00
Librarian II 0
Librarian I 150.00
Base salary adjustments for 2004:
Full Professors $171.00
Assoc. Prof. 1.50
Assist. Prof. 0*
Librarian IV 151.50
Librarian III 1.00
Librarian II 0
Librarian I 19.00
* In the initial WSS awards, Assistant Professors received adjustments to their base salaries. These amounts were negatively affected when Ryerson was taken out of the comparator group. In the arbitrated settlement, it was agreed that there would be no clawback of the Windsor Salary Standard payments to Assistant Professors.
The outstanding WSS payments for 2003 & 2004, including all adjustments for annual increases, were paid in the December 15, 2006 pay cheque.
