uWaterloo increases female faculty pay to correct wage gap

August 5, 2016

The University of Waterloo has announced that it is increasing the salaries of female faculty after an internal review uncovered a “systematic gender anomaly” that was “consistent across the university.” At the start of September, an adjustment of nearly $3K will be made to the salaries of all female faculty members who were part of the union’s bargaining unit as of April 30th last year. The review also recommended making a one-time adjustment for other faculty members whose salaries were flagged as “anomalous” during the evaluation. Globe and Mail (CP)
