An average 2.5% salary increase plan for faculty and staff for FY11 was approved by the Board of Trustees at its July 14, 2011 meeting. Salary increase payments for unrepresented employees are effective as of July 1, 2010 and will appear in the 8/16/11 paycheck for unrepresented staff and the 8/31/11 paycheck for faculty. Qualified represented employees are also scheduled to receive salary increase payments under this plan effective July 1, 2010 in their 7/29/11 paycheck. Details are available from your bargaining unit representative.
The State of Illinois has approved the FY12 Budget, which includes a 1.15% reduction in general revenue state appropriation funding for SIUE. However, the SIU Board of Trustees will not act on the FY12 Budget until its September 8, 2011 BOT meeting.
Regarding the FY11 Budget, as of 7/15/11, the State still owes SIUE $24.7 million, which is 38.5% of our FY11 state appropriation requested to date.
Please accept my thanks and appreciation for your many contributions to SIUE, as well as my very best wishes for the remainder of the summer.
Vaughn Vandegrift, Chancellor
