UNM Staff Salary Structure

Due to economic and associated budget concerns, the University of New Mexico (UNM) Staff Salary Range Structure has not changed since August of 2011. During this period, observed market pay rates (the average rates that are being paid for a job in the workforce), have increased nation-wide by an average of approximately 6%.

The University is mindful of the need to support its commitment to the community to serve within its financial means. However, the University also understands that staff recruitment and retention efforts around the institution must continue to support its mission. Therefore, the University continues to review its salary range structure periodically to address observed market changes, as stipulated in the UNM Vision Statement for Compensating Staff Employees.

Based on the results of the periodic review performed by Human Resources (HR), in order to remain competitive as an employer and acknowledge the efforts of its employees, effective November 1, 2014, the UNM Staff Salary Range Structure for Staff Employees was adjusted upwards by approximately 6% at all pay grades to accurately reflect current market conditions. The revised salary structure tables are included below. A printer-friendly version of the tables is also available.

When the Staff Salary Range Structure is adjusted, there is no impact on individual salaries for employees whose current pay rates are within the revised ranges. However, in the cases where staff employee salaries fall below the minimum of the adjusted range, effective November 1, 2014, staff employees' salaries will be brought up to the new minimum of the respective grades. Staff employees' salaries that fall below the new minimum of the respective grade will be identified by HR and communicated to both the supervisor and employee. HR will make all adjustments to the previously notified staff employees' with no additional action needed from the department.

Please contact the HR Compensation department at 505-277-0610 or at comp@unm.edu if you have any questions or concerns regarding the range structure. Managers or supervisors that have concerns regarding salary rates of individual employees in their area should contact their HR Consultant.
