Queen's & USW Job Evaluation System Project

The following is an overview of the Queen's & USW Job Evaluation (JE) Project.

Existing JE System

The current system has been in place since the early 1990s and is in need of modernization in order to reflect our changing work environment.

Going Forward with a New Job Evaluation System

A Letter of Understanding (LOU) regarding job evaluation was part of the 2011, first Collective Agreement between Queen's University and USW Local 2010 in 2011. The commitment to the JE project was renewed as part of the 2015 collective agreement. USW Local 2010 represent approximately 1,250 Queen's staff members.

In the first phase of the JE project Queen’s and USW have jointly completed the design of JE system tools (factors, sub-factors, and job content questionnaire) for the JE system.

The second phase of the project is expected to begin soon. The purpose of the second phase is to gather specific job information about USW positions in order to evaluate them using the JE system tools.

Updates on the JE project next steps will be made on this web page.
