Background

Chapter 137 of the Laws of 2004 implements the agreement between the State of New York and United University Professions (UUP) and provides for Discretionary Salary Increases for UUP (BU08) employees. Payment of the increase is at the discretion of the College President and may be made to employees who are incumbents on the payroll on June 30, 2007.

Note:  Effective the paycheck dated 8/22/07, the State University of New York College of Ceramics at Alfred University (BU41, agency codes 28510 and 28515) merged with Alfred University, a private educational institution.  Employees of the College of Ceramics are no longer paid through the New York State payroll system.

Effective Date(s)

SUNY System Administration has designated pay periods for each campus to submit their discretionary increases.  Discretionary Salary Increases may be submitted in Pay Periods 16L and 17L, paychecks dated 11/28/07 and 12/12/07.

The Discretionary Salary Increases are effective:

All Discretionary Salary Increases must be entered by SUNY through the Automated Interface Pay Periods 16L and 17L.  SUNY must ensure that the position salary information is updated prior to submitting these transactions.

To process the 1% increase for eligible employees, agencies must submit a Job Action Request transaction using the Action/Reason code of Pay Rate Change/SIC (Salary Increase).

Subsequent Rows
Agencies must submit Pay Rate Change transactions using the Action/Reason code of Pay Rate Change/CSL (Correct Salary) to update any subsequent rows that appear on the employee’s Job Data record provided the employee remained in BU08.
