A. Carkeek, Associate Vice President/ Director Human Resources
increases will take effect on July 1, 2003. Below is a brief
explanation of how these increases will be determined.
raises will be comprised of two components. The first component
is a flat rate amount that will be added to an employees
base salary to help offset the increase in the cost of living.
For all full-time staff, this increase is $350. This amount
will be pro-rated for part-time employees. The second component
is a percentage increase that will be decided by the employees
department. This amount can range from a minimum of zero percent
up to a maximum of 5 percent based on such factors as merit,
market, correction of inequities, and departmental resources.
The average budget allocated to fund this second component is
receive an individual salary profile from their supervisor or
manager in late May. This profile will illustrate your specific
situation and how your salary increase was determined. Your
supervisor should be able to help you understand your individual
salary profile. The increases described here do not affect employees
who are covered by collective bargaining. For staff in a bargaining
unit, raises are determined through union negotiations. We are
hopeful that negotiations will be completed by early to mid
to remain competitive within the overall job market, the University
of New Mexico recently underwent a market study. As a result
of this study, the entire Staff Salary Schedule will be increased
approximately 3 percent, placing staff positions in a more competitive
market position. However, based on the market study, it was
determined that some job titles had fallen behind the market
more than 3 percent. These job titles, 250 in all, will be moved
up a grade.
to the Staff Salary Schedule have also resulted in a new minimum
and maximum salary for each pay range. This increase will cause
some individual salaries to fall below the new minimum for a
particular range. The individuals in this situation will have
their salaries automatically raised up to the new minimum amount.
Those individuals whose salaries are currently over the maximum
of a pay range will have the amount that exceeds the old maximum
rolled back into their base salary making a lump sum payment
no longer necessary.
