Subject Salary Increases for Employees in the Graduate Student Employees Union
Purpose To inform agencies of OSC's automatic processing and related agency procedures.
Affected Employees Graduate Student Employees in Bargaining Unit 28.
Effective Date Effective February 28, 2002, pay period 25L, check dated March 27, 2002.
Contract Provisions and Eligibility Criteria Chapter 29 of the Laws of 2001 provides for a 3 % general salary increase effective February 28, 2002. The increase is calculated based on the employee's February 28, 2002 salary rate. The amount calculated will be rounded to the next whole dollar and will be added to the salary rate in effect on February 28, 2002. To be eligible for the salary increase, an employee must have been active in Bargaining Unit 28 on February 28, 2002.
OSC Automatic Processing After payroll processing for pay period 25L is complete, OSC will automatically insert rows in the Job Data record of all eligible employees to reflect the salary increase. The action of PAY RT CHG and the Reason Code SAC (Mass Salary Increase) will be used.

All Job Data rows that are subsequent to February 28, 2002 will also be updated with the amount of the increase originally calculated on the February 28, 2002 salary rate. Additional rows will be inserted to reflect the increased salary using the Action of PAY RT CHG and the Reason Code of SAC (Mass Salary Increase). Exception: Job Data rows containing a 0 in the Comp Rate field on the Job Data 3 panel will not be updated.
Agency Procedure Agencies must use the pre-raise salary when requesting Pay Changes, Position Changes and Transfer Actions in pay period 25L.
