Dear Members of our Campus Community,

I am pleased to inform you that the University of California will be implementing systemwide salary increases for non-represented employees for the 2017-18 fiscal year.

The merit program for non-represented staff will be effective July 1, 2017, for monthly paid staff and June 18, 2017, for bi-weekly paid staff. The budget for merit increases will be calculated at 3% of the eligible payroll base. Implementation details for the merit program are being finalized by Human Resources and will be distributed soon.

Faculty and other non-represented academic personnel will also receive a general salary increase, effective July 1, 2017. Details of the plan are being finalized and will be distributed soon.

We are deeply grateful to our faculty and staff colleagues for your commitment and dedication. Your exceptional contributions as valued members of our academic community have advanced the national and international stature of our campus as a great public research university while enhancing our emphasis on excellence, diversity, affordability, and accessibility.
