June Staff Senate Rewind

Posted on Thursday, June 28th, 2018 by staffAdmin under General Staff Senate News.

Our Year End Wrap-up Presentation

(Staff Senate – Annual Report 2017-2018) can be found on the Staff Senate website under the Meetings/Minutes section.

Voting

Is currently underway for Co-Chairs-Elect and to fill an opening for Co-Chair. All current senators may vote. Please try to do so before the end of the week.

State Legislator News

As reported, State legislators have passed the state budget. The 2% increase does not include university employees. The budget has a total of $20 Million for salary increases to be distributed for UNC System employees. More information is needed before we learn how this will be allocated.
Five bonus days were also awarded to employees. If you use the bonus days during the year and have more than 240 hours in your vacation leave balance on December 31st, the amount of vacation leave converted to sick leave will be reduced by the number of bonus days you used.

Staff Senate Scholarship

Congratulations to Ricquita Dillard and Candace Williams, recipients of the Staff Senate Scholarships.
