While I have not heard any official word yet, Director Swanson did say at the Western Regional meeting he believes salary increases will be in the 2 to 2.5 percent range, on average. As soon as something is official we will let you know. He gave an interesting presentation about the overall University budget at the Western Region annual meeting and the probable impact of foreign student attendance slowing down which affects the overall University budget.
For most everyone Annual Reviews are complete and due to the Fiscal office by May 10th at the latest. If you haven’t had yours yet please speak to your supervisor ASAP. My experience has generally been that the new form is better and the review is more of a conversation, a good thing.
A big push is on from the University to have all positions correctly classified. Stay tuned as many of us, including Regional Directors are in the process of writing ours.
