General Increase 2023

Policy Covered General Increase 2023

General Salary Increase Program for policy-covered staff July 2023

We are pleased to share the good news that UC President Michael Drake has confirmed the decision to proceed with a 2023 general salary increase program for policy-covered staff employees and academic appointees (i.e., employees not represented by a collective bargaining unit) at all locations, contingent upon state funding. In the event the current budget expectations are altered, UC President Drake will provide an updated announcement at that time.

For policy-covered staff employees, salary increases will be implemented as a general increase, where all eligible policy-covered staff employees would receive a 4.6% increase to their base salary. Although this year's salary program for policy-covered staff is not a merit program where performance impacts the amount of increase, the importance of the annual performance review process should not be discounted. All policy-covered staff employees should continue to receive, at least annually, a performance review per policy. This program is separate and distinct from any UC ANR Market Adjustment program. Please review the guidelines and eligibility criteria for policy-covered staff.

For policy-covered academic appointees, the academic salary scales will be increased by a general range adjustment of 4.6%. The adjustment to the academic salary scales will be effective July 1, 2023. The regular peer-review merit advancement process for policy-covered academic appointees will continue per academic personnel policy. This program is separate and distinct from any UC ANR Market Adjustment program. Guidelines and eligibility criteria for policy-covered academic appointees will be available on the website shortly. 

Please note that this increase does not apply to represented employees and academic personnel who are receiving separate increases in accordance with applicable collective bargaining agreements.
