The Southern Illinois University Board of Trustees, at its regularly scheduled meeting on the Alton campus Thursday, approved a salary increase plan for the Edwardsville campus for the 2016-17 and 2017-18 fiscal years.
The salary plan for the Edwardsville campus includes a 2 percent salary increase for eligible SIUE employees effective as of July 1, 2016 for the 2016-17 fiscal year and a 2 percent increase for eligible SIUE employees as of July 1, 2017 for the 2017-18 fiscal year.
The salary increase would apply to non-represented employees and to those in unions that have a closed contract containing a salary clause benchmarked to non-represented salary adjustments.
SIUE Chancellor Randy Pembrook, PhD, will work with SIU President Randy Dunn, PhD, to determine eligibility guidelines. For those in unions with open contracts, compensation will be part of the contract negotiations.
