We will be receiving our raises!


Dear Colleague,

The UMass System Office informed our campus (and all UMass campuses) to disperse your raises—all of it—4% total on your base salary (from the 2% increase due July 1, 2017, and the additional 2% increase due July 1, 2018), and retroactive pay back to July 1, 2017.  You will be receiving this in your December 14 paycheck. 

Thanks to many of you who called in yesterday.  Marty Meehan’s office received hundreds of calls from all of the UMass campuses and thus authorized payment for the fourteen state-funded units and for non-unit (i.e. non-union, administration) personnel.  Our collective voices made the difference.  By working together and across UMass campuses, we achieved this. 

I hope you have a very wonderful weekend.
