Important Victory for WUFA in the Mercer Arbitration
On August 24th Arbitrator Pamela Piche issued her ruling in our policy grievance against the administration in the matter of the independence of the Pension Plan’s actuary, Mercer.
Why Mercer must be replaced
WUFA members are concerned about the lack of independence between the Administration and Mercer, the pension plan actuary. Our pension plan requires the actuary to be independent of the Administration. Nonetheless, the Administration hired Mercer to provide it with private collective bargaining advice during the 2011 round of negotiations.
Ontario universities and faculty associations are anxiously awaiting the government’s decision on the new funding formula for post-secondary education.
