Regents approve 2 percent staff salary increase
Proposal also includes a 50-cent-per-hour increase for student employees.
The University of Alaska Board of Regents, at its November 9 meeting in Anchorage, approved a 2 percent salary increase for non-union staff employees. If approved by the governor and the legislature, the increase will be effective July 1, 2011. An additional 1 percent increase will funded internally and will be effective in January 2012. The proposal also includes a 50-cent-per-hour increase for student employees.
The university budget did not include salary adjustments for union employees since those contracts are still being negotiated. When union agreements are reached, the funding will have to be approved by the legislature.
