Ask TRUFA: Salary placement?

Ask TRUFA is a venue for members to ask questions anonymously and receive answers from TRUFA Stewards or Executive. Submit your question at Ask TRUFA.


I was hired by TRU last May as an LTC to start in September. However, I am not satisfied with how I have been placed on the salary grid. I do not feel that my placement has taken into account my experience and my education. What can I do?

Dear Concerned Faculty Member,

Thank you for your question. Any faculty member who believes their initial placement on the salary scale is in error can appeal the placement within 6 months of employment as per Article of the TRU/TRUFA Collective Agreement:
An employee who believes that his/her original placement on the Salary Schedule is incorrect may apply in writing to the President (who will then forward to HR) within the first six (6) months of employment to have the alleged misplacement reassessed.  
Article 11.5 refers to Initial Placement on Salary Schedule and is the document used to place a faculty member on the TS Scale.
Mike Looney and Krista Lussier, Co-Vice Presidents Stewards

Thanks for asking TRUFA.
