So after scrolling through the new contract, I noticed that faculty ‘raises’ (or mostly ‘non-raises’) includes for Fall 13 only, a change in step (as it says “In addition, each current full-time faculty member will be granted a one full step increase effective at the beginning of the fall semester of 2013.”)…but no where can I find language to clarify if the step is based on the step system of the old contract or if it is a new system – basically, in trying to figure out my salary for this upcoming Fall – I was stumped. Any insight on how this works? Or am I missing something really obvious in the contract?
I found it. It’s based on the Fall 2012 & Spring 2013 schedule. However, the jump for me gives me about a 4.4% raise. Didn’t they say it’d be 11%?
Nope. The 11% number is for “Lane Advance.” The promise was for a one-time, full step increase.
For anyone interested, the info is in section VI.A.1. A full step for all FTers, based on Spring 2013 schedule in the old contract and annual 2.5% increases after that effective on your start date (after July 14th). So instead of fall hires getting a slight tick upward from spring to fall and then a half step in January of varying size, it’ll be a compounding, one-time, annual raise that is (hopefully) below the inflation index.
And that’s not even including the performance bonus…
