Faculty members at the University of Windsor have approved a new 3-year contract.

At a ratification meeting this afternoons, Windsor University Faculty Association members voted 65.8% in favour of the new 2014-2017 collective agreement.

The new agreement provides for an average increase of 8.9% over three years based on annual scale adjustments of 0%, 0%, 3% and PTR (Progression Through the Ranks) payments of $2550, $2550, and $2650.

Under the new agreement, PTR for Associate and Full Professors will be reduced to 50% of the normal rate when a member’s salary reaches 1.75X the salary floor for their rank, and to 0% when their salary reaches 2X the salary floor.

WUFA members will also receive annual Windsor Salary Standard adjustments to ensure that salaries within each rank remain at the median within the province. Members will also receive lump sum payments of $1250 in each of the first two years. Sessional instructors will see their stipend per course increased to $8,000.

Changes to the pension plan will see member contributions increase from 8% to 9% in year 3 of the agreement. In addition, so long as a member continues to be actively employed and up until the time that they are required by law to commence receiving a pension (age 71) , they will be required to contribute to the plan.
