The State of Illinois has approved the FY14 Budget, which includes flat (zero percent increase) funding in the state appropriation for SIUE. However, the SIU Board of Trustees will not act on the FY14 Budget until its September 12, 2013 BOT meeting. The FY14 budget was recommended by the University Planning & Budget Council. Additional budget information will be presented at the Chancellor's Annual Address on September 18 and the All Faculty Meeting on October 10.
Updates will be posted on the SIUE Planning & Budget website at http://www.siue.edu/budget/
I am recommending to the SIU Board of Trustees an average 2% salary increase plan for unrepresented faculty and staff for FY14, which the Board will consider for approval at their September 12, 2013, meeting. If approved, FY14 will be the 11th consecutive year of salary increases for SIUE employees.
Salary increase payments for unrepresented employees would be effective as of July 1, 2013, and would appear in paychecks during the fall semester. Qualified represented employees would receive salary increase payments in accordance with their respective collective bargaining agreements.
