Although it might seem backward to librarians unaccustomed to working in a unionized workplace, the APUO is the only agent that can negotiate your salary on your behalf, aside from when you receive your offer of employment. It is extremely important that you negotiate a fair and adequate salary at the time of your being hired, as this will affect your compensation for the duration of your employment at uOttawa.
All scale adjustments and PTR payments are made on May 1st, unless otherwise agreed to by the APUO and the University of Ottawa.
The salary scales for librarians for 2012-2016 are in Section 41.2 (pages 307-314) in the collective agreement.
