Approximately 75% of employees working at UVic are covered by the collective bargaining agreements of either the Professional Employees Association (PEA), the Canadian Union of Public Employees locals (CUPE) or the Faculty Association (which includes librarians). Of all employees working at UVic, 85% earn at least a "living wage" as defined in urban areas of the Province of British Columbia as $20 per hour. The only union local not paying $20 per hour is one section of CUPE 4163, specially the Academic and Cultural Assistance (while at the junior level). These figures do not include work study students employed part time at the university.

Information on collective agreements for staff, plus benefits and leave information can be found on the Human Resources website, http://web.uvic.ca/hr/. Information on collective agreements for faculty, librarians and teaching assistants, sessional and lab instructors can be found here, http://www.uvic.ca/info/bargaining/fac-assn/.
