Email Campaign for FY13 Staff Increases

The Staff Alliance Compensation Working Group is calling for an email campaign in support of FY13 staff increases, to be discussed at the BOR meeting September 22-23, 2011.

Our rational supports a 4.6% salary increase, although due to the economic realities we agreed to accept a minimum of 3.5% increase.

Things to consider:
  • In FY12 staff accepted a greater financial risk with the newly designed healthcare plans, regardless of the plan selected.
  • The BOR responds positively to personalized testimony
  • State employees receive grid increases, to address COLA, and an additional est. 3.5% every year for the first seven steps, and an est. 3.75% increase bi-yearly thereafter.
In general we are asking staff to respectfully support our request.
Please have emails sent to
