Timing, level of raises announced
Jun 16, 2008
Fiscal year 2009 salary increases for various groups of Ohio University employees take effect in the coming weeks. Here are the specifics:
- Classified employees and employees represented by bargaining units (AFSCME and FOP) will receive an across-the-board increase of 3 percent effective June 22, the first day of the pay period that includes the July 1 start of the fiscal year. The increase will be reflected in July 18 paychecks.
- Administrative staff have a 3 percent raise pool, and department heads can vary the percentage of raises given to individuals within their units. The raises take effect July 1 and will be reflected in the monthly paychecks issued at the end of July.
- Group I through IV faculty members also have a 3 percent raise pool, with percentages to be granted on the basis of merit. The raises will first be reflected in faculty members' Oct. 1 paychecks.
- Group I faculty will benefit from the university's $1.2 million commitment annually to improve the competitiveness of faculty salaries over a five-year period, beginning July 1, 2007. The increases, which are merit-based, are called for in Vision OHIO.
In addition, the fiscal year 2009 administrative, classified and IT pay structures, which set pay ranges, will be adjusted upward 4 percent beginning July 1. This adjustment causes the minimum, midpoint (or market reference point) and maximum of each pay range to increase.
Pay structure adjustments are made periodically to keep the university's pay plans competitive with the external salary market. They are separate from the annual pay increase and are not necessarily an annual occurrence. This is the first adjustment to the university's pay structures since July 2006.
The new pay structures are available on the University Human Resources Web site.
For more information about annual increases or pay structure adjustments, contact Director of Benefits Greg Fialko at firstname.lastname@example.org or 740-593-1639.
