Salary, PTR, and Benefits

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 matters related to Salary are in Article 41 of the Collective Agreement. All matters related to Benefits are in Article 40.

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.

Health Benefits

Health Care Spending Account – The uOttawa extended health benefit does not cover everything. In fact, it leaves a lot out. If you want to pay for a health care cost that is not covered (or if you’ve already spent the amount that was allocated) you can have up to $244.00 per year to spend on expenses not covered by the plan.
