2. Processing of the Legislatively Approved 3.6% Across the Board Salary Increase
An automated process for loading the 3.6% across the board increase has been developed. Departments will be provided a report via enterprise reporting which identifies potentially eligible employees. Each Department Chair is responsible for reviewing their list to insure that each employee is eligible to receive the increase.
Departments may request changes (additions or deletions) to the report by contacting the appropriate core office. Please contact Employment and Classification at 392-4621 or firstname.lastname@example.org to make changes to TEAMS and USPS employees. Please contact Academic Personnel at 392-1251 to make changes for Faculty and Graduate Assistants.
Any employee who is hired on or before the eligibility dates but after the raise file is created on approximately June 20, 2005, is eligible for the increase and will need to be added to the raise file by contacting the appropriate core office as listed above.
3. Merit Increase for Faculty
A 1.4% merit increase pool has been created for faculty. Each Dean’s office will first address promotions (including distinguished professor) and SPP across the college and then distribute the remainder of the raise pool to departments to be used as merit. Individual merit increases will be based upon approved departmental merit criteria that have been recommended by the Chair and approved by the Dean. Chairs should utilize department merit criteria when assessing performance.
Eligible 12 month faculty will receive the 3.6% across the board increase and any applicable merit increase effective August 1, 2005.
Eligible 9 month faculty will receive the 3.6% across the board increase and any applicable merit increase effective August 16, 2005.
Eligible 10 month faculty will receive the 3.6% across the board increase and any applicable merit increase effective August 9, 2005.
For faculty in the Colleges of Dentistry and Medicine who derive some or all of their salary from clinically-funded sources, a merit raise pool will be created for distribution.
4. Processing Faculty Merit Increases
Merit and promotional increases for eligible 12, 10 and 9 month faculty will be applied to their annual salary on the eligibility dates listed above.
*Dean confirms merit increase recommended by department chairs, and each department will then enter the merit increase into the raise file
*Additional deadline dates and processing details will be sent in a forthcoming instructional guide
5. Market Equity Increases for Staff
Pending the availability of local resources each Vice President and Dean may consider market equity adjustments for certain TEAMS and USPS positions within their units. Requests for market equity adjustments must be supported by relevant market data and submitted to the Vice President for Human Resources for review and approval before becoming effective. Market equity adjustments will not be added to the raise file, but rather core office staff will manually add the adjustments into Bridges.
6. Staff Pay Range Adjustments
TEAMS and USPS staff minimum pay ranges will be adjusted by 2% effective August 1, 2005.
7. Increases for Staff within Bargaining Units
Eligible bargaining unit members may only receive an increase subject to union negotiations.
