How you will be affected by a lump sum payment

Highlights

  • UHPA recently received the written salary proposal from the Governor.
  • The offer provides a 1% one-time lump sum cash bonus of a faculty members’ base salary.
  • The offer will impact faculty members differently based on your employment date.

If you were hired Before July 1, 2012

Faculty Members hired before July 1, 2012 will have ERS deductions taken from the lump sum cash bonus. The lump sum cash bonus will count toward the “high three” years of salary for purposes of calculating retirement benefits.

If you were hired from July 1, 2012 to the present

Faculty Members hired July 1, 2012 to the present shall have no ERS deduction taken from the lump sum cash bonus. The lump sum cash bonus will not count toward the “high five” years of salary for purposes of calculating retirement benefits.

Other Faculty Compensation

There are no increases in minimum annual salaries; lecturer fee schedule; non-credit fee schedule, and overload rates per credit hour.

UHPA’s view on the Governor’s 1% lump

This is an unacceptable proposal from the Governor and continues to devalue the work of faculty members. UHPA’s bargaining team has been firm in its opposition to this paltry sum and has expressed this directly to the Governor’s representative.
