UCSF Chancellor Susan Desmond-Hellmann today announced that effective July 1, 2013, the University of California will implement systemwide salary increases for the 2013-2014 fiscal year.
Faculty and other non-represented academic personnel will receive a 2 percent increase to their covered compensation. Eligible, non-represented staff employees will receive average increases of 3 percent.
"Additionally, at UCSF, we will soon be working with each department to conduct equity reviews for non-represented staff employees with the expectation that limited individual equity increases will be identified and addressed," the chancellor said in an email to the UCSF community.
The UC-wide salary increases were included in the 2013-2014 budget that was approved by the UC Board of Regents last November. These increases are intended to acknowledge the fact that non-represented employees have received only one general salary increase in the past five years. The increases are also intended to partially offset increased retirement and benefit costs that faculty and staff have absorbed in recent years.
"I am pleased to announce this salary program because the contributions of UCSF’s faculty and staff are essential to our excellence," Desmond-Hellmann said. "At this time of the year, our attentions rightly turn to recognizing and honoring the achievements of our graduating classes. But as I look across campus, I also recognize and honor the talent, commitments and hard work of our faculty and staff employees. Your dedication ensures the future of UCSF."
The UC system’s salary program does exclude certain employee groups. These groups are:
- Top senior management members, including the president, chancellors, executive and senior vice presidents and other senior managers who report directly to the president; medical center chief executive officers; direct reports to the Regents; certain other senior managers; and athletic coaches whose salaries are covered by multi-year contracts;
- Any staff who have had promotional or equity increases exceeding 3 percent in the past 12 months (chancellors may, at their discretion, grant exceptions to this requirement); and
- Union-represented employees.
Details on the salary program for faculty and other non-represented academic positions will be announced by Vice Provost Sally Marshall. David Odato, associate vice chancellor, Human Resources, will announce the details about the program for eligible, non-represented staff. Also, information on the administrative process guidelines, as well as details on when salary increases will be reflected in faculty and staff paychecks, will be announced soon.
