1. The motion put forward on December 5th was withdrawn.

 

2. M/S to approve the proposal put forward below

 

Proposal :

1) The salary adjustment associated with promotion from assistant to associate professor should be raised to $3,000, and the salary adjustment for promotion from associate to full professor should be raised to $5,000.  Both adjustment increases would be effective immediately, i.e. for persons promoted in 2001.  Individuals receiving these pay increases would be ineligible for compression adjustments

 

2) The $3000 and $5000 amounts should be increased annually by the same percentage as the increase in the faculty pay package.

 

3) The university administration should be encouraged to contribute $131,000 of University-wide resources toward the elimination of compression across ranks each year of the next biennium. 

 

4) The chancellor should be encouraged to dedicate his/her discretionary portion of the salary package (10%) to addressing compression across ranks.

 

5) If the pay increase is above 3.5%, then 10% of the increase in pay package dollars (total faculty salary - base faculty salary) should be used to address compression across ranks.  (The 10% indicated herein is in addition to the chancellor's discretionary 10%.)  If the pay increase is less than 3.5%, funds to address compression should come only from items 3 and 4 above, and no additional resources should be taken from the faculty pay package.

 

6) Available funds to address compression should be allocated to faculty at the ranks of Associate Professor and Professor in a 25% to 75% ratio.  Compression adjustments would be made to all eligible faculty in those ranks on an equal dollar basis.

 

3. M/S to amend item 5 above to read “If the pay increase is 3.5%, or greater…”, the amendment passed 9-0-0.

 

4. The main motion passed 8-0-1

 

The meeting was adjourned 4:30 pm
