uWinnipeg freezes senior administration salaries

March 26, 2010

The University of Winnipeg announced Friday that its senior administrators -- the president, vice-presidents, associate VPs and equivalents, and deans -- will take a pay freeze in 2010-11 in an effort to balance the operating budget. These measures are in response to the Manitoba government's latest budget, whose PSE measures are not enough to meet all of the institution's budget needs for the coming year, says uWinnipeg president Lloyd Axworthy. Nearby uManitoba recently approved a salary freeze for members of the executive group and senior administrative academic group. uWinnipeg News Release
