Benchmarks

The Facilities Benchmark Class Specifications are the sole criteria for the classification of jobs in the Facilities subsector.

A benchmark is not a job description. It is a number of duties, described in broad terms, that represents a level of work and responsibility. A job description is a detailed list of duties required by an employer at a particular facility.

These documents will provide your benchmark rate code and/or grid code. To find your wage rates, look in your Collective Agreement, and your Wage Schedule, both found on this page.

HEU’s classification system has more than 270 benchmarks within these occupational groups.
