“Profs sue uOttawa over executives’ pay hike”
“We were so, you could say, ‘insulted’ at the lack of response from the board of governors, and even the minister, that one of the only ways left to get the information we want, and to figure out if this was legal or illegal, was to bring it to the courts,” association president Jennifer Dekker said Friday.
“We’ve read the law. We think it’s illegal.”
In October, the APUO wrote to Moridi urging a “transparent public investigation” into the raises given to vice-president of research Dr. Mona Nemer and to Dr. Jacques Bradwejn, dean of the School of Medicine, the person who approved Nemer’s raise.
Nemer’s pay jumped by $132,304 — or 50 per cent — between 2012 and 2014, pushing her salary to $392,058, according to Ontario’s sunshine salary disclosure list. The association complained about the increase to the university’s board of governors last summer summer. — Ottawa Citizen, Dec. 17, 2015, “Profs sue uOttawa over exectives’ pay hike“
