|Re:||FY 2017-2018 Staff Compensation Program for Legacy Rutgers URA-AFT Administrative Staff|
I am pleased to announce the 2017-2018 Staff Compensation Program (SCP) for eligible staff members represented by the URA-AFT. The performance management process of the SCP allows Rutgers University supervisors to engage with their URA-AFT staff in thoughtful dialogue about the year’s performance and accomplishments, and to define goals and objectives for the coming performance year.
The appraisal period for this review cycle is May 1, 2016, and extends to April 30, 2017. Supervisors must complete performance evaluations and notify employees of their appraisal ratings by April 30, 2017. Employees should be given the opportunity to comment on the appraisal, in writing, by June 1, 2017.
The merit component of the SCP provides for a salary increase pool of 2.25 percent of the March 1, 2017 aggregate salaries of eligible URA-AFT staff in accordance with Article 41 from the URA-AFT Collective Negotiations Agreement, available at: http://uhr.rutgers.edu/sites/default/files/userfiles/URA-AFT_Agreement_2014-2018.pdf. This program will be implemented effective July 1, 2017 for eligible 12-month employees, and September 1, 2017 for eligible 10-month employees. Merit salary increases and any one-time, lump-sum payments will be reflected in the July 14, 2017 paycheck for 12-month staff, and in the September 8, 2017 paycheck for 10-month staff.
The following summary outlines the Fiscal Year (FY) 2017-2018 SCP:
The unit merit pool allocations for those employees eligible for the FY 2017-2018 program will be provided to Chancellors and Vice Presidents on April 17, 2017. A data entry/modeling system, the SCP Online System, facilitates the process of awarding increases, and provides listings of eligible employees and related reports to unit administrators. This system will be available to designated users on April 17. System entry and approval of all awards must be completed by June 2, 2017. The process schedule, related program information, and forms are available on the University Human Resources webpage for SCP at http://uhr.rutgers.edu/SCP-deans-managers.
