The Parties (OPSEU and CMHA WW) developed a Gender Neutral Comparison System (GNCS) to evaluate all bargaining unit jobs in the organization. The Job Evaluation Plan consists of 13 factors, and is considered a point-factor job evaluation system. It incorporates skill, effort, responsibilities of the job and the working conditions under which the job is normally performed.
Positions were placed within a certain range of points based on job evaluation point scores. These ranges serve to establish bands, which then led to the resultant pay range. As a result, there are several distinct jobs within each pay range, each with different functions, but with similar overall scores based on the GNCS evaluation results. The evaluation factors ensure our compliance with Pay Equity legislation while the weighting given to each, in the evaluation process, ensures that we recognize the unique nature of each position and its demands relative to other positions.
Adjustments will be implemented where required (the Pay Equity Plan will be posted on the Pay Equity Committee SharePoint page). In addition, because of the results of the Pay Equity Job Evaluation process our salary structure has been updated based on the agreement reached between the parties. The new salary structure is effective April 1, 2019. Those who are specifically impacted by the results of the negotiated settlement will receive individual communication over the coming days.
