We are pleased to let you know that in accordance with President Drake's recent decision, UC ANR is implementing a 3 percent salary increase program for policy-covered staff and academics at all locations. It is critical that we recognize the extraordinary efforts by our employees, including our policy-covered employees, during the past year and to recognize the challenging period ahead.
The academic salary scales will be increased by a general range adjustment of 3 percent for policy-covered academic appointees. The adjustment to the academic salary scales will be effective July 1, 2021, for UC ANR policy-covered academic appointees. Those academics who are successful in merit and promotion reviews during the current cycle will advance effective July 1, 2021. No decisions have been made regarding any equity adjustments. Any decision to make equity adjustments will be communicated late summer.
All eligible policy covered staff employees would receive a 3 percent increase to their base salary, effective July 1, 2021. The general increases will be effective July 1, 2021, for monthly and June 27, 2021, for bi-weekly paid employees.
Further information about the payout dates and eligibility will be communicated by HR in the near future.
People are our greatest asset; without you, we cannot achieve our research and extension mission. I want to take this opportunity to thank you all for your hard work and dedication.
