In February, the New Mexico State Legislature passed the state budget which included a 1.5% pay raise for state college and university employees. The 1.5% Mass Salary Update (MSU) was approved by the UNM Board of Regents and will take affect July 1.
Regular staff employees should plan for the 1.5% increase if meeting the following criteria:
Employees must have been hired prior to Jan. 1, 2021 and have completed their probationary period prior to July 1, 2021.
Employees must have obtained “Successful” overall ratings for both job responsibilities and goals on their annual 2020 Performance Evaluation.
Salary increases for bargaining unit employees are subject to the applicable collective bargaining unit agreement.
Questions regarding faculty increases should be directed to the Office of Faculty Affairs and Services at Faculty@unm.edu or the HSC Faculty Contracts Office at HSC-HSCFCO@salud.unm.edu.
