After 10th through 15th year .0731 per hour paid 19 152
3. Voluntary process to move from hourly to salary pay. The currently established voluntary process for conversion to salaried status will continue with the following modifications:
a. The Employer or an employee may request, for a specific classification within a specific work unit, a formal poll to move to salaried exempt status. A change to salaried exempt status requires a majority vote among those voting. Only Union members may participate in that poll. The Union commits to conducting this poll and submitting the results to the Union’s Executive Board for formal approval of the results within six weeks of the request.
b. In addition, an employee in a regular status position may request to move to salaried exempt status by notifying his/her manager, appropriate HR representative and Union representative. If the Employer consents, the parties shall facilitate this movement.
c. The salary range for the employee’s classification is determined by matching the midpoint of the existing hourly range to the closest mathematical midpoint of the salary structure.
d. The employee’s new salary level will be established by multiplying the employee’s current hourly rate times the employee’s FTE times 2,080 hours.
4. Posting of vacant positions. The Employer may post any vacant position that qualifies as exempt under the wage and hour laws as a salaried position.
5. Compensation adjustments.  Salaried employees will be eligible to receive compensation adjustments as provided in Article 8, except that Section 8.2 shall not apply.  Annual performance reviews will be conducted for salaried employees.  Salaried employees shall receive a 1.5% increase on their anniversary date, not to exceed the pay range maximum, provided they have maintained satisfactory performance appraisals.  If no annual appraisal is done by the Employer this requirement is waived.
6. Longevity increase. To be eligible for a longevity increase, employees must remain at the range maximum in the same classification for five (5) years consistent with current longevity rate guidelines. Employees who are at the maximum of their hourly pay range when they transition to salaried status and whose rate of pay is no more than 2.5% below the new range maximum shall, effective the date they move to the new range maximum as a result of an anniversary increase, receive credit toward the 5-year waiting period for a longevity increase.
7. Vacation and sick leave accruals.  Vacation and sick leave accruals for salaried employees will be based on the employee’s FTE.
8. Timekeeping requirements.  Salaried employees’ timekeeping requirements will be comparable to those in effect for Unclassified Administrative employees.
9. Differentials.  Salaried employees who are assigned work in a higher level classification pursuant to Section 10.10, are assigned lead work duties pursuant to Section 10.5, or qualify for differential pay under Section 10.7 or Section 10.8, for any portion of their scheduled shift shall receive the applicable differential for the entire shift.
10. Seniority.  Seniority points under Article 17 will be credited per pay period based on FTE rather than on hours paid.
11. Relief and flex employees.  Relief employees and flex staff who perform work in a salaried classification will continue to be paid on an hourly basis.
12. Salaries in effect.  The salaries in effect for all salaried classifications shall be set forth in the OHSU Salaried Compensation Plan, which is posted on the Employer’s intranet.
