President Wilson Announces Raises for 383 Staff Employees

Cal State Northridge President Blenda J. Wilson announced that 383 university staff members will receive special pay raises under the fourth year of a staff merit pay plan.

Those who earned the Performance Salary Increase (PSI) awards, out of about 1,100 eligible employees, mostly received the raises starting with their regular November paycheck posted at the start of December, as well as back pay because the raises are retroactive to July 1.

Campus officials said the value of the raises this year totaled about $330,000. But the amounts also become part of employees' base pay for the future. The PSI program applies to eligible CSUN staff members represented by unions in eight covered bargaining units.

For employees in five of those units-Unit 1 (Physicians) and California State Employees Assn. Units 2, 5, 7 and 9-the suggested increases were approximately 2, 3 and 4 percent, based on three different levels of exemplary work performance, campus officials said.

For Unit 6 (Skilled Trades) members, the suggested increases were about 2, 3 and 5 percent. Meanwhile, Unit 8 (Public Safety) members could receive one- two- or three-step increases, each approximately worth 2.5 percent.

Employees in Unit 4 have not been granted PSIs, as the CSU and the Academic Professional of California are at impasse in the collective bargaining process and no agreement has been reached yet for this year.

Although the exact procedures vary among different bargaining units, staff members typically were nominated in writing by their supervisors, with deans and other supervisors recommending the actual award levels to the vice presidents and president.

The merit raises, which total about 20 percent of each bargaining unit's total compensation pool for the year, are in addition to the regular general salary increases for all represented employees and service-based increases for eligible ones granted this year.

A new component of the program this year for Units 2, 5, 7, and 9 includes the possible granting of a one-time bonus payment up to 2.5 percent of the annual salary of the employee. The program-which is available to employees holding positions in which they are being paid at the top of their salary range-was negotiated between CSEA and the CSU.
