Salary Increases to Come in September Paychecks

August 8, 2007

In June, the USNH Board of Trustees approved a 4.5 percent salary increase for all eligible non-union employees. The increase provides for a 2.5 percent across-the-board raise and an additional 1.5 percent for merit/internal equity. The remaining .5 percent is for market-equity.

An employee must be on the payroll at the time of distribution to receive the increase.

Employees who are not eligible for the pay increase include those:

- who resigned or retired before 6/30/07

- who have received a terminal notice

- over the new maximum for their assigned salary range

- with documented unsatisfactory performance

- on leave of absence as cited in system policy

- whose salary increases are negotiated through a

collective bargaining agreement

- who have a negotiated fy08 annual salary/hourly rate

- principal administrators whose increases are determined by the

executive committee of the board of trustees

Postdoctoral research and teaching associates are eligible to participate in the university's annual salary increase process. The faculty mentor recommends the amount of the salary increases consistent with UNH salary increase and external sponsor guidelines.

PAT, non-AAUP faculty, AA, and EE workers will receive the increase in their Sept. 7 paychecks while OS employees will show up in their Sept. 14 paychecks.

The 0.5 percent market equity increase aims to address market competitiveness and will address targeted PAT positions that are deficient by 10 percent or more of the market and OS positions that are deficient by 5 percent.

In addition, the new fiscal year brings a change in salary grades for 64 OS and PAT positions. To see a list of the positions affected go to http://www.unh.edu/hr/pdfs/FY08-Salary-Increase-Guidelines-UNH.pdf.
