The University suspends the calculation and payment of the Windsor Salary Standard for the first three years of the 2021-2025 collective agreement to be in compliance with Bill 124, Protecting a Sustainable Public Sector for Future Generations Act, 2019.
P.1 (a) The Windsor Salary Standard for each rank is the median of the average salaries of the Ontario Universities for the said rank using the data from the University and College Academic Staff System (UCASS) for faculty without administrative duties and excluding medical faculty.
(b) On or about March 31, 2025 the value of the Windsor Salary Standard will be computed for each rank using the procedure set forth in clause P.1 (a) using the UCASS Data pertaining to the periods July 1, 2023 to June 30, 2024. This will be compared to current average salaries for each rank at the University of Windsor. Where a positive adjustment is needed to bring the average salaries at the University of Windsor in each rank to the Windsor Salary Standard such an adjustment will be made in accordance with clauses P.1 (c) and P.2. Where, after a comparison between the average salary at the University of Windsor in each rank and the Windsor Salary Standard, a negative adjustment is indicated to bring the salary level in the particular rank at the University of Windsor into conformity with the Windsor Salary Standard, no negative adjustment shall be made.
(c) Only where a positive adjustment is warranted in accordance with this Article shall each member of each rank, receive a non-retroactive adjustment to the member’s Normal Salary on June 30, 2025, representing the difference between the Windsor Salary Standard and the current average salaries for each rank(s) at the University of Windsor so that the average salary of each rank at the University of Windsor shall be equal to or above the Windsor Salary Standard for the years referred to in P.1 (b) above.
