Appointment Priority Policy: In making assignments, priority will be given to students as set out in Appointment Priority Policy A of Appendix "A" of the UVic/CUPE 4163 Collective Agreement. Please note that an application does not ensure employment, except in cases where it is guaranteed as part of a student's funding package. However, all interested students are invited to submit applications in the event that there are more positions available than there are applications from the students in the priority categories, or where attrition over the course of the term results in positions becoming available.
