Salary Equity Adjustment Update
Pay Adjustments should have been applied on your November 1st pay statement. Staff who were to receive these adjustments were notified by HR. Please review and and contact the HR office if you have any questions.
The council in collaboration with the campus administration has formulated a plan to address salary equity issues in the fall of 2013. The basic plan (See text of the resolution here) will be to address equity issues for staff who are below 88% of their comparison figure with a base-building adjustment. A second task will be to address those between 89-99% of their comparison with a one time lump sum adjustment. More information and answers to possible questions can be found in this FAQ file.
Educational Benefit Taskforce Update
A small working group met in November and will be working to begin the formulation of the draft ideas about this possible process.
Leaders from the Classified Staff Council, Faculty Senate, and Academic Staff Council have held meeting to discuss the possibility of working on a plan to allow faculty and staff to take academic courses without cost. Before embarking on any planning, a small working group drafted a letter to the Chancellor on the issue. (See letter here.) Working will continue on this issue if we receive affirmation that the administration will seriously consider such a policy.
Past Minutes and Agendas:
- Past ASC meeting minutes and agendas from approximately 2010 to 2013 are being converted into PDF files and will be found on the link off the main ASC webpage. Meeting agendas for the current year will be posted the University Meeting Calendar found at http://www.uwlax.edu/meetings/ The ASC is currently looking to place our minutes from the last three years on the webpage but will need to convert them to a searchable PDF format. Please understand this will take some effort and time. If you are in need of any approved minutes in the interim, please contact us.
