In accordance with the current contractual agreement (Article 29) between the International Union, United Automobile, Aerospace and Agricultural Workers of America (UAW) and the University of California, the 2018-19 rates for the Academic Student Employees (BX) will be adjusted by an across-the-board increase of 3 percent effective October 1, 2018 for monthly paid employees and October 7, 2018 for biweekly paid employees. As with previous years, the Graduate Student Researcher rates will also receive a matching increase of 3 percent effective October 1, 2018 for monthly paid employees and October 7, 2018 for biweekly paid employees.
Please note that this year the 3 percent increase for Graduate Student Researchers is applied to the monthly rate (rounded to the nearest dollar). The monthly rate will derive the annual rate.

After the Adjustment: Review
Payroll no longer automatically prints/distributes reports of the changes resulting from the range adjustment process. You still have access to these reports via the EDL. Instructions on accessing these reports can be found at: https://wiki.oit.uci.edu/display/public/Electronic+Document+Libraries+%28EDL%29+Payroll+Reports+Overview.
Please remember that it is critical that you review and verify the accuracy of the changes as soon as possible. With so many payroll changes occurring, it is important that any errors be corrected before salary is affected (payroll cut-off: October 25, 2018 for monthly employees and October 26, 2018 for biweekly employees).
If you have any questions, please contact your Academic Personnel Analyst.
