Classified Administrative Jobs Consolidation

Last updated: July 26, 2018.

Effective July 1, 2018, the University has consolidated administrative, secretarial and clerical job classifications.

As a result of negotiations between UW, SEIU 925, and WFSE for the 2017-2019 contracts, a total of 28 job profiles have been consolidated into a new, five-level Administrative Assistant series, as shown in the table below.

*Pay Table BI is for WFSE represented jobs. Negotiations with WFSE regarding the Administrative Assistant series are still in process.

All impacted employees were placed on a new pay step using “value to value plus one” placement; meaning employees moved to the pay step on the new range that is closest to but not less than their current pay as of 7/1/18, and then moved up one step not to exceed the top regular incremental step. Part of the B4 table is pasted below to provide an example of value-to-value plus one placement: an employee on range 39, step D ($3202) will move to range 41, step C ($3279) effective 7/1/18.

Hourly paid employees impacted by this consolidation whose hourly rate falls below the new range were brought up to the new hourly rate minimum.

New classification specifications and updated pay tables are available on the compensation webpage.

All impacted employees can now see the changes reflected in Workday and will be paid according to their new pay rates on the 7/25 paycheck.
