nonunion faculty salary increases are being distributed
The FY’04 salary increases retroactive to Sept. 1, 2003, and
associated bonuses for eligible faculty and staff were reflected
in the Nov. 7 paycheck for salaried non-AAUP faculty and staff,
and will be in the Nov. 14 paycheck for operating staff. Other personnel
actions that were placed “on hold” through the testing
phase such as introductory increases, reclassification increases
and equity adjustments are being processed and should be reflected
in the Nov. 21 paycheck for salaried non-AAUP faculty and staff,
and the Nov. 28 paycheck for operating staff retroactive to the
initial effective date. Any questions may be addressed to Joyce
Cleary at 2-0513.

Keep those windows closed
Facilities would like to remind everyone that as heating season
is now upon us, we ask that everyone be vigilant about closing windows
when they leave at night. We hope to have an incident free year
with no pipes freezing due to open windows.
