Fiscal Year 2021-22 US-UNM Mass Salary Update Guidelines
Mass Salary Update
Consistent with the wages agreement between UNM and the United Staff-UNM (USUNM) bargaining unit, departments should plan for a 1.5% salary increase for USUNM staff employees meeting the criteria below:
- Employees must have been hired prior to January 1, 2021 and have completed their probationary period prior to July 1, 2021.
- Employees that have a centrally recorded 2020 Performance Evaluation must have a “Successful” rating listed on both the overall categories for job responsibilities and goals.
Non-probationary employees who have not received a 2020 performance evaluation by their manager by June 1, 2021 will not be prohibited from receiving the one-and-a-half percent (1.5%) MSU increase.
Non-probationary employees who have received a "Not Successful" rating listed on either of the overall categories for job responsibilities or goals may have the opportunity to raise their overall ratings. Any employees whose ratings have improved by September 10, 2021 will be provided with an updated performance evaluation and must be centrally recorded by September 24, 2021. If so, such increases will be effective October 9, 2021 and will be processed beginning with the October 9, 2021 pay period.
Additional Salary Increase Requests
On a limited basis, departments will be permitted to request salary increases between 1.6% and 3% contingent on available department funding. The specific processes, guidelines, and approvals have been established by the appropriate President/EVP/SrVP. Please refer to the links below for detailed guidelines for each area.
Out-of-Guidelines (OOG) Requests
In exceptional circumstances, a department may provide an additional increase to a bargaining unit member which is between a total increase of 3.1% up to 5%. Out-of-Guidelines exceptions will be contingent on available department funding, guidelines established by the appropriate EVP./SrVP for each area, and must include direct approval by the EVP/SrVP.
Increases greater than 5% will not be allowed.
