Approximately 83% of UVic employees 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, 83% earn at least a “living wage” as defined by Living Wage Canada as $19.39 per hour. The only union local not paying this amount is one section of CUPE 4163. These figures do not include work study students employed part time at the university, or casual staff.
