UAW RSE Status Quo Agreement and FAQ
The following questions are applicable to employees in the RSE A-4 series.
Where can I find the agreement between the UW and the union regarding the status quo?
The agreement between the UW and UAW regarding status quo for RSEs may be found here.
Can departments move forward with position reviews, in-grade salary adjustments, FTE adjustments, and Temporary Pay Increases (TPIs)?
What should be the effective date of position reviews, in-grade salary adjustments, FTE adjustments, and TPIs?
Departments are able to process actions retroactively to the date the position review/in-grade salary adjustment/FTE adjustment/TPI was approved internally.
Does the union need to be notified about position reviews, in-grade salary adjustments, FTE adjustments, and TPIs?
When needed, union notification will happen by Labor Relations and as part of the Compensation approval process. Departments do not need to take any action regarding notification.
Can in-grade salary adjustments be made for the purpose of retention (competitive offers)?
For what reasons can departments adjust FTE?
Departments are able to adjust FTE (up or down) if an employee requested it, if such adjustment is needed as a result of funding, or if such adjustment is needed for workload and/or the needs or requirements of the grant.
What should a department do if an FTE adjustment changes the exempt/non-exempt status of the position?
As is current practice, HR Compensation will identify the appropriate job profile and initiate the change in Workday.
