We are pleased to let you know that the UC system, including UC ANR, is implementing a 4.5 percent salary increase program for all eligible policy-covered staff and academics, effective July 1, 2022. This is just one of the important ways we recognize the extraordinary efforts by our employees to deliver our mission, despite the challenges we continue to face. Further information about the payout dates and eligibility will be communicated by Human Resources in the near future.
In addition, the academic salary scales will be increased by a general range adjustment of 4 percent. The adjustment to the academic salary scales will be effective July 1, 2022, for UC ANR policy-covered academic appointees and June 26, 2022, for bi-weekly paid employees.
Those academics who are successful in merit and promotion reviews during the current cycle will advance effective July 1, 2022. No decisions have been made regarding any academic equity adjustments.
Please note, these salary programs are contingent upon the 5 percent allocation currently in the State budget and is subject to change. While we do not anticipate a change, in the event the current budget expectations are altered, the announcement will be shared from UC President Drake. Union-represented academic and staff employees pay programs are governed by collective bargaining unit agreements.
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.
