Each UWOSA member whose PDQ is under review is entitled to up to two hours paid time to review the PDQ during regular hours in their workspace. The Dean, Budget Unit Head or designate will either agree with and sign the PDQ, or amend the PDQ as she sees fit and sign it. The Dean, Budget Unit Head or designate shall forward the PDQ for evaluation to Human Resources within thirty (30) days, with a copy of the PDQ given to the incumbent employee, which will include any comments added by the incumbent employee. (Art. 44.04).
Human Resources shall evaluate the position based on the job evaluation system developed by Western and UWOSA. This evaluation, including the notes from the evaluation, the rate of pay recommended, and any retroactive pay applicable, and determination of job class shall be communicated in writing to the Dean, Budget Unit Head or designated supervisor and to the employee within thirty (30) days of receipt of the signed PDQ. This decision shall state the deadline for and manner of appeal (Art 44.06).

UWOSA worked very hard to obtain the language of Article 44 (Job Evaluation) and 56 (Pay Equity) during the round of collective bargaining in 2017.
Evaluations of PDQs submitted by June 30, 2022 should be available. If you fall into one of the units listed above and are not sure if your PDQ was submitted, or when you will receive the evaluation results, please start by asking your supervisor. Next step is to reach out to Western’s Human Resources department by contacting Sandy Del Vasto, Human Resources Consultant at firstname.lastname@example.org or call extension 85575.
