The salary effect of faculty unionism in Canada
Despite the fact that the faculty at most universities in Canada are organized, there has been little investigation of the impact of unionization on Canadian faculty compensation. The results of this analysis of data collected from Statistics Canada publications and other sources for the period 1972-91 suggest an average salary premium of between 2% and 3% for faculty belonging to a certified bargaining unit, compared to nonunionized faculty. So-called "special plans," private agreements under which faculty associations annually negotiate salaries and other terms of employment but are denied the right to strike, appear to have had a similar effect on salaries.
