Dear Staff Members,
The University is pleased to confirm that the modest salary increase communicated by the BC Government recently applies to all staff who are members of unions or AAPS that have ratified agreements with the University under the Economic Stability Mandate of 2014-2019, as well as non-union technicians, and staff in the Executive Administrative group.
The Economic Stability Dividend is an additional general wage increase that for 2016 will result in an ongoing 0.45% wage increase. The effective dates vary by union/association, and while they are not the same as the collective agreement renewal date, they are linked. The dates are as follows:
AAPS – May 1, 2016
CUPE 116 – February 1, 2016
CUPE 2950 – February 1, 2016
CUPE 2278 – July 1, 2016
BCGEU Childcare Staff – March 1, 2016
The effective date of the Economic Stability Dividend for non-union technicians and for staff in the Executive Administrative group will be May 1, 2016.
