Union grievance alleging breach of the Collective Agreement between the parties in that the Employer is in violation of Article 16 and other relevant articles in not paying Academic Staff Members at their Y-value (salary scale placement) as revised by the Salary Parity Committee. The Union requests compensation for all members of the Union who have not been paid in accordance with the Collective Agreement. At the outset of the hearings in this matter counsel for the parties agreed that this arbitration board is properly constituted and properly seized of this matter, and should remain seized after the issue of any award to deal with any matters arising from its application. Counsel agreed to waive any post- hearing time limits.
