MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDING #2 Compensation and UPP Market Adjustments

MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDING #2
Compensation and UPP Market Adjustments
A.
 
Effective the first full pay period following January 1, 2016, the following changes shall be implemented for all bargaining unit employees enrolled in the UPP retirement plan: 
 
1. All employees actively participating in the UPP as of the first full pay period following January 1, 2016 will receive a 6% increase in their wage rate.  This 6% increase will be in addition to any across the board increase that is negotiated for the bargaining unit.
a. Employees whose pay increase places them at or above the range maximum will be red-circled at that rate until the range catches up to their pay rate.
 
b. The Employer will offer financial counseling services to UPP employees, specifically regarding the effect on retirement of not rolling the 6% offset into a tax deferred retirement account.
2. For all positions in the bargaining unit, the minimum of the pay range will be increased by 5% and the maximum of the pay range will be increased by 6%.  
3. The Employer will discontinue the 6% employee contribution pick-up for eligible employees participating in the UPP.  
4. The parties will no longer employ a 5% discount when evaluating the market competitiveness of bargaining unit pay ranges.  Accordingly, the Market-Based Salary Committee will no longer incorporate a discount into its review and recommendations for pay range adjustments.
5. The Market-Based Salary Committee will continue to review market-based information and make recommendations for market-based adjustments, upward or downward as appropriate, in accordance with Section 8.4 of the parties’ Agreement.
a. There will be no market-based adjustments for salary grades 10-16 during the term of this Agreement.
 
b. The time periods for determining downward adjustments for all other pay grades will be reset so that they begin following ratification of this Agreement.
 
B.
Following the implementation of all contractually agreed pay adjustments as of the first full payroll period following ratification, the base pay rate of any employee with a pay rate of less than $12.75 will be increased to $12.75.  Following the implementation of all contractually agreed pay adjustments as of the first full payroll period following July 1, 2016, the base pay rate of any employee with a pay rate of less than $13.75 will be increased to $13.75.  Following the implementation of all contractually agreed pay adjustments as of the first full payroll period following July 1, 2017, the base pay rate of any employee with a pay rate of less than $15.00 will be increased to $15.00.
