Rates of pay

The University of Victoria Human Resources department and CUPE 951 meet annually to review and determine the employee group for each job posting.  Work Study jobs have been classified as either Non-Union or CUPE 951.  Each work study job posting indicates the appropriate employee group.  When completing a work study timesheet, please choose the correct employee group for the position.  If you are not sure, please contact your supervisor.

Work Study rates of pay are as follows:

The Work Study Program pays $16.00 per hour, including 4% vacation pay.

Work Study students filling positions deemed CUPE will be charged a one-time $10.00 initiation fee and 50 cents per pay cheque for other union fees.  An additional 1.79% will also be deducted on total earnings for membership dues.  The Work Study Program will pay the 1.79% cost on total earnings for membership dues.  This information and a breakdown is outlined on the work study time sheet.

Should the Work Study position require graduate level experience, departments are bound by the negotiated specialist/instructional rates of pay for students and must agree to top-up the Work Study rate of pay accordingly.

Please refer to the Salary Schedules on the UVic Human Resources page for the appropriate rates.
