As you may know, the UC Board of Regents last November approved funds in UC’s 2011-12 budget to provide a pool for merit-based salary increases for faculty and staff.
I am writing to share with you the letter from President Yudof to chancellors that outlines the general terms of the merit program and explains his decision to exclude senior-level managers from participation. Yudof's letter can be read at http://atyourservice.ucop.edu/news/general/
As President Yudof states, the merit program is aimed at helping recruit and retain academic staff, who are the source of UC’s academic and research quality, and also to acknowledge non-represented staff for their ongoing dedication and service despite not having received general pay increases for the past several years.
The merit pool will be calculated at 3 percent of the overall pay in the eligible personnel categories, and individual increases will be based on performance and determined locally. In the coming days, UCOP will be sending specific guidelines to the ANR academic and staff personnel offices for how the merits will be implemented. We will share those additional details with you soon.
In the meantime, the Executive Working Group joins President Yudof in expressing appreciation for the contributions you and your colleagues make to the University, the people of California, and the countless others we touch every day in our service to the public.
