Use the instructions below to examine your SWF for accuracy. As well, using our "Instant SWF Check" Excel spreadsheet, you can enter your currently assigned workload and then revise it appropriately to see how your workload calculations change when your workload is calculated correctly or differently. Of course, you can project any workload scenario using this spreadsheet.
To determine if your current workload is truly reflected on your SWF, take a careful look at your latest SWF and consider the following questions.
a) Examine the section dealing with assigned teaching hours.
- Does it reflect the number of courses and sections you are actually teaching?
- Does the number of students listed under class size reflect the number of students actually registered in your class?
- Is there anything unusual about your workload that might merit/require special consideration under Article 11.01 G 2 which deals with "atypical circumstances"?
b) Examine the section dealing with complementary functions.
- Does it reflect all your additional work, including regularly scheduled meetings and committees?
c) If you answered "no" to any of these questions and want some help in recalculating your SWF, contact us at the Union office or by phone at (416) 415-5000 ext 2200.
