Union grievance alleging breach of the Collective Agreement between the parties for the period April 1, 1988 - March 31, 1991 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 who have not been paid in accordance with the Collective Agreement.

At the outset of the hearings prior to the preliminary award in this matter counsel for the parties agree that this arbitration board is properly constituted and properly seized of this matter, and should remain seized to deal with any matters arising from its application. Counsel agreed to waive any post-hearing time limits.
