MUNASA began in 1972 with the challenge of establishing the first Pay Equity process at McGill. Since the early 1990s MUNASA has lobbied for the creation of a modern and holistic compensation system. The result is the M Compensation system, introduced to McGill in 2001: a system that includes job families, role profiles, and job competencies and integrates with Staffing and Staff Development opportunities, and Performance Planning.

Job Classification

MUNASA monitors trends in job classification and job matching and can provide members with advice on requirements for career advancement.


MUNASA introduced the Principles of Performance Planning document to the Administration in 2003. It was a basis for the development of Performance Dialogue. MUNASA has worked with Human Resources to promote Performance Dialogue as an objective means to set performance goals and provide a structure for Staff Development.

Staff Development & Competencies

With the introduction of Performance Dialogues in 2004 by McGill, MUNASA followed with a proposal for a taxonomy of competencies to ensure job requirements are consistent, equitable, and attainable. In 2005 MUNASA joined Human Resources in a working group to develop a Competency Model for the M Compensation System.
