You have used 'sacctmgr' to assign shares to the associations
corresponding to the users, right?  Check the output of 'sshare' to see
information on how the shares have been set up and what the actual
fairshare values are.  Unfortunately, the web page for the multifactor plugin 

  https://slurm.schedmd.com/priority_multifactor.html

doesn't seem to mention setting things up with 'sacct'.

Cheers,

Loris
