 L-1 Part Time Vice-Presidents Compensation  

Sponsor: (Retired Members Guild (RMG)

Whereas the PIPSC Executive Compensation Committee (ECC) recommended changes to the compensation of Part Time Vice Presidents to the PIPSC Board of Directors (PIPSC Board) in September 2020; and

Whereas these recommended changes to the compensation of Part Time Vice Presidents were approved by the PIPSC Board at its September Meeting; and

Whereas changes that were made to Part Time Vice Presidents terms and conditions of employment (Service Agreements) did not go to the PIPSC AGM (AGM) for debate, nor did additional changes recommended by ECC at its September 2020 meeting; and

Whereas changes to compensation philosophy for Full Time and Part Time Elected officials have, in the past, gone to the AGM for debate; and

Whereas it has been a long-standing practice that Part Time Vice Presidents be compensated based on a Vice President’s job description, as developed by the Institute, and presented to the AGM; and

Whereas it has been a long-standing practice that Part Time Vice Presidents be compensated 50% of their time at the PIPSC Vice President rate and 50% of their time by the employer in accordance with their substantive position; and

Whereas compensating Part Time Vice Presidents at their substantive position hourly rate of pay, as approved by the President, and shutting Retired members out for lack of a substantive position, creates a class of PIPSC employees that are paid across a broad range of pay levels that are neither connected to nor commensurate with the Part Time Vice President work performed, and further aggravates a burdensome administrative process of checks and balances; and

Whereas not compensating Retired Members who seek and win an election for Part time Vice President not only constitutes discrimination on the basis of their retirement status and age but also contradicts the concept of labour rights that individuals in the same workplace be given equal pay for equal work. 

Be it resolved that the AGM overturn the Board of Directors’ decision of September 2020 and compensate any member, retired or otherwise, based on the Job description for Vice Presidents, at 50% time of Full Time Vice Presidents;

Be it further resolved that the Institute rescind these revisions to its compensation policy, to make it fair for all members and to align it with universally accepted labour rights, as well as federal and provincial Human Rights protections concerning "equal pay for equal work".
