Early RetirementThe Unclassified Staff Advisory Council discussed and devised a six-point plan outlining what the Retirement Incentive Plan (R.I.P.) should include so as to represent unclassified staff interests.

UpdateDiscussion in the fall lead to the question of how the staff compensation line in the budget was spent. Joyce Carter indicated that she will have a response about this issue for the Council by our next meeting.
New BusinessAn issue of upgrading the bottom of the pay schedules was brought before the council. Questions were raised as to how the pay of a position is determined, i.e., what markets and types of institutions are compared in order to come up with the salaries offered. It was thought by many that the market of Universities and Colleges in the area have lured staff away from Wright State by offering higher pay bases. Many of these institutions are not compared when determining pay for Wright State positions. Comparisons of new hires to those that have been in the department for several years were also addressed. In some cases it was thought that upgrading the pay schedule may bring new people up to a salary only slightly less than currently employed people. More information on this issue is needed and will be discussed at an upcoming meeting. Anyone with concerns should contact Judy Rose, Chair USAC.
Another issue to be discussed at the next meeting will be how the Council can contact the people they represent within their constituencies.
