Collective agreements for lecturers and postdoctoral fellows will be signed soon. They are still effective today on September 1, 2017, following an agreement with the direction.
The finance department may need a pay period to adjust, in which case wage increases will be paid retroactively as required from today. This applies to any person currently under contract, even if you have signed this contract at the former salary rate.
Lecturers benefit from a 22% increase in their hourly rate. A collective RRSP, to which École Polytechnique will contribute, will also come into effect in early 2018 for those who are not registered in the Polytechnique pension plan and who choose to register.
Postdoctoral fellows receive a 2% increase on the salary stipulated in their current contract, and the minimum wage is now $ 35,700 per year. These rules apply to all post-docs paid by funds managed by École Polytechnique. External scholarships are not covered, but if a postdoctoral student has mixed funding, the portion paid by funds managed by École Polytechnique is subject to the 2% increase. A collective RRSP, to which École Polytechnique will contribute, will also be in place in early 2018 for those who choose to register.
