Western releases annual salary disclosure list

In keeping with the Public Sector Disclosure Act, Western released today an annual list of employees whose 2015 income met or exceeded $100,000, as reflected on their T4 slips. Also outlined on the list are taxable benefits for the year 2015.

Most of Western’s faculty and staff salaries are negotiated through collective bargaining and reflect reasonable compensation given the scope of individuals’ responsibilities, academic or professional credentials, expertise and years of service.

Amit Chakma, Western’s President and Vice-Chancellor, is not included on this list for 2015 because his income did not meet or exceed $100,000. In April 2015, Chakma voluntarily decided to forgo his salary and directed that money toward repaying funds he had received in 2014 in lieu of not taking an administrative leave. He has repaid the full amount with interest.
