How Salaries Would Be Determined
- The university would look at comparable jobs in both the public and private sector to determine market rates, the same as all other employee groups at the university
- The university determines the market rate for your position using salary surveys that we subscribe to. This analysis for your position occurs on an annual basis
- This allows the university to offer salaries that are competitive both locally and regionally
- Your salary will not fluctuate year-to-year or be reduced as a result of the new model. Increases to your salary will occur via the regular increments and negotiated increases
