Annual salary disclosure from Western

In keeping with the Public Sector Disclosure Act, Western University is releasing 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.

Western’s President and Vice-Chancellor, Amit Chakma is not included on this list for 2015 because his income did not meet or exceed $100,000. In April 2015, Dr. 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.
