Negotiating Your Appointment:

Your individual letter of appointment is a negotiated document in which specific items are subject to your agreement. Do not assume that the first offer made to you by the dean is a final offer, for the University expects to enter into negotiations at this stage. Once you have been made a first offer, feel free to consult with WLUFA for suggestions on how to respond. Articles 13.12.1 and 14.10.1 of the Collective Agreement specify the elements which must be contained in a Letter of Appointment. Particular attention should be paid to Reference Salary; credited years of service for leaves, and credited years in rank. What you manage to negotiate in these areas has longterm consequences for your career path and income.
