Salary Increases

​How to process salary increases for faculty members.

Members of the Faculty Association

Salary increases and other economic benefits are negotiated annually by the Faculty Association for all members of the Association. These increases are normally effective July 1.  

Salary Increases for Full-Time Members

All full-time academic ranks (Professor, Associate Professor, Assistant Professor, Instructor I, Instructor II, Senior Instructor, Professor of Teaching), 12-month Lecturers and Librarians are eligible for negotiated salary increases. Increases may include a general increase and amounts for the Career Advancement Plan, which includes Career Progress, Merit and Performance Salary Adjustment (a provision for redressing anomalies and inequities).

Salary Increases for Part-Time Members and Sessional Lecturers

Increases may include an “across the board” general wage increase.  As per the Agreement (2010-2012) there are no general wage increases for part-time faculty members and Sessionals. For information about the faculty salary increase implementation process, please see the Faculty Relations’ website.

Faculty Members Covered Solely by UBC Policy

Increases may be made at any time, subject to funding availability and the approval of the supervising faculty member, Department Head/School Director and Dean.

If you need assistance in determining membership in the Faculty Association and/or UBC Policy, please refer to the Faculty of Medicine Faculty Appointment​ Matrix (rev Jan 2014).
