Employees who move “step-to-step” will be placed on the step on the new range that is the same step on the higher range. For example, an employee on step K would be placed on step K on the new range.

Range reassignments and pay table structure changes:

  • A variety of range re-assignments and pay table structure changes to implement Pay Table Parity for SEIU 925 and WFSE.
  • Range re-assignments for jobs formerly on sparsely populated pay tables BK, BD, B1, and BY and which will be inactivated.

2% across-the-board increases for classified non-union (CNU) employees as well as various range increases for CNU jobs including but not limited to Animal Technicians, Human Resource Consultant Assistants, and Veterinary Specialists.

The Compensation website will be updated in the near future to reflect the new pay tables and range assignments. You can find more information on negotiated changes on the Labor Relations website.

When will I be able to see the increase? All impacted classified staff should be able to see the changes reflected in Workday as of July 23, 2019. The new pay rates will be reflected on the July 25, 2019 paycheck.

Hourly Employees. With a 2% across-the-board increase to pay ranges for most classified jobs, hourly employees at or near the bottom of the ranges will fall below the new range minimum. Hourly employees whose hourly rates fall below the new range minimum will be brought up to the minimum centrally by the Integrated Service Center. No departmental action is required.
