We are in final preparations for Workday and the Integrated Service Centre going live on November 2.

Merit and Performance Salary Adjustment awards

Merit and performance salary adjustment (PSA) awards are granted at the discretion of the university when provided for in the annual bargained agreement.

Merit units and salary adjustments

For increases effective July 1, 2019, the 12-month review period is April 1, 2018 to March 31, 2019.

The dollar amount of the Merit unit varies from year to year. The value of a Merit unit as of July 1, 2019 is $2,172.

Merit and performance salary adjustment (PSA) awards are granted at the discretion of the university when provided for in the annual bargained agreement. The Association negotiates the total amount to be allocated to such awards and the criteria for distributing the awards.

Merit awards

Merit allocations are communicated individually to each Faculty unit by the Faculty Relations team.

Performance salary adjustments (PSA)

PSA allocations are communicated individually to each unit by UBC's faculty relations department. 

Recommendations for PSA awards are made having regard to overall performance. The factors that should be taken into account are:

  1. performance over a period of time which is worthy of recognition
  2. the relationship of a faculty member’s salary to that of other faculty taking into consideration total years of service at UBC, and
  3. market considerations.

PSA awards must be based on these three factors and may not be used as additional merit dollars.

The merit-PSA summary spreadsheet

The Merit-PSA_summary spreadsheet (xls) has been created to summarize allocations. Each faculty must complete a merit-PSA summary spreadsheet listing all members of the faculty unit to whom merit and/or PSA is being awarded, showing the amount of each award in the merit-PSA summary spreadsheet.

Merit-PSA summary spreadsheets should be returned to UBC's faculty relations  department by each dean’s office (or equivalent office) at the same time as the faculty salary increase spreadsheets. Departments should not return their individual spreadsheets to Faculty Relations.

Processing merit and PSA awards

For the merit and PSA awards to be processed as part of the automatic increase process, all merit and PSA allotments must be entered on the Faculty Salary Increase spreadsheets before they're returned to UBC's faculty relations department. If the amounts aren't entered on the spreadsheets, they'll have to be processed manually.

Remember that you must also send the Merit-PSA_Summary Spreadsheet for your Faculty to Nicole Hyatt.
