SUBJECT:  Proposed 1999-00 Staff Salary Plan

As you probably are aware, the Governor signed the 1999-00 State budget, which includes funding for UC staff salaries. Based on the budget action, UCSD proposes the following 1990-00 salary plans for UC staff employees.

For non-exclusively represented employees in the merit-based pay plan, the fund pool available for merit increases would be 3.5%, effective October 1,1999. The salary range minimums and maximums for merit-based pay plans would be adjusted by 2% effective October 1. Funding at the level of a 2% general increase for eligible employees in flat-rated or step-based salary plans would be effective October 1, 1999.

Funding for staff incentive awards would continue to be available in 1999-00. Information regarding UCSD's incentive award program will be provided in a separate communication.

For exclusively represented staff, salary actions are subject to the terms of existing collective bargaining agreements and/or to meeting and conferring in accordance with the Higher Education Employer-Employee Relations Act (HEERA), as appropriate.

Campus employees with questions or comments may contact Judy Johnson at extension 40986 or via email at jjohnson@ucsd.edu. UCSD Healthcare employees may contact Ann Skinner at SYSM Code: AMR1 or by email at askinner@ucsd.edu, or by phone at (619) 220-5089.
