C.3 The Anomalies Committee shall develop procedures and criteria for granting anomaly allocations based on a report commissioned by the parties and consistent with current legislation on the distribution of such payments. The report commissioned by the parties, which shall be completed by October 31, 2022, shall take into account any salary adjustments made prior to the allocation of this Anomalies Fund and shall determine whether one or more of the following exist:

C.4 The Anomalies Committee, by June 30, 2023 shall administer the anomalies funds towards the alleviation of anomalies in salaries based on the results of the Committee’s deliberations. Where granted, anomaly awards shall be folded into Normal Salary as of June 30, 2023. These awards are not retroactive.
C.5 The Anomalies Committee shall evaluate the salary of every member and those who are deemed anomalous shall be automatically considered for an award.
C.6 Within fourteen (14) days following the awarding of anomalies, the Provost shall inform the Faculty Association of the distribution of anomalies funds. This information shall include the number and size of anomalies units as distributed by rank to members within each AAU and Library.
C.7 After the monies have been disbursed, the Anomalies Committee shall undertake a review of salaries to determine whether any anomalies remain.
