Faculty grid placement appeals

UNBC Faculty Association
July 5, 2021

Dear UNBC Faculty Association Members,

The transition to the new agreement included a mechanism in Article 74B.1.1 for placing members on the appropriate grid step based upon Years at Rank. A joint committee for the University and the Faculty Association has been struck to receive appeals from members who think they should have been placed at a different grid step.

Appeals must be sent into to Dr. Owen at bill.owen@unbc.ca by July 14, 2021. The committee will review individual appeals and make a recommendation to the Provost, who will make the final decision.

A member wishing to submit an appeal must provide:

  • An up-to-date curriculum vitae; and
  • A Cover Letter outlining:
    1. Years at Rank for each level of rank at UNBC (e.g., Assistant, ..., SLI I, ..., Librarian I, ...);
    2. Relevant recognized years of service prior to UNBC appointment; and,
    3. A reasoned argument for placement at a different grid step.

The Committee will review the appeals, and will make a recommendation to the Provost.  The Provost will decide regarding the appeal on or by July 31, 2021.

Dr. Owen
