OS Council Update
April 18, 2007
A discussion on the longevity policy that rewards UNH employees with 10 years of service or more was the central topic at the recent OS Council meeting.
Councilors reviewed a proposed draft that includes merchandise rewards in addition to flat-fee payments rather than percentage increases. The suggested monetary change breaks down as follows:
Years of service
Payment per year
| 10 to 14
| 15 to 19
|20 to 24
|25 to 29
The current policy awards payments ranging from two to 10 percent of one’s salary, depending on the years of service. The new plan would give bonus payments once a year rather than the percentage payments.
Most councilors agreed the new plan, with its merchandise awards, would be too cumbersome to manage would not be “cost neutral.”
