The University is implementing a merit-based salary increase program for eligible policy-covered staff in fiscal year 2017-18.
Consistent with budgetary guidelines, the merit pool will be 3%, with increases effective July 1, 2017, for monthly paid employees and June 18, 2017, for bi-weekly paid employees. This plan will apply to eligible policy-covered (non-represented) staff. It excludes student employees and anyone covered by Academic Personnel Policies or a union contract. The 3% budget control figure is not intended to result in across-the-board increases; instead, increases should be based on the individual’s performance and contribution relative to others in the review group.
The implementation of this merit increase plan will help support consistent and stable pay practices, while also maintaining competitiveness in attracting and retaining the best talent for the University. Campus Human Resources and Health Sciences Human Resources have issued implementation guidelines for the plan.
