Faculty Rights Tip: Pay Raise upon Promotion

Note to readers: This week, we are repeating the Faculty Rights Tip from March 18 due to its timeliness and importance. 

Are you up for promotion this year? Article 31.5 of our collective bargaining agreement states:

31.5 Promotion shall be accompanied by advancement of at least seven and one-half percent (7.5%) on the salary schedule.

It’s important to note this is not an upper limit, but rather a lower limit. University administrators may grant a greater than 7.5% advancement at promotion. 

Faculty up for promotion who are suffering from salary compression or inversion should not hesitate to request a greater than 7.5% salary increase upon promotion.

If you have questions about salary increases at promotion you can contact your campus CFA faculty rights representative.
