Article 6. Wages
Section 1D. Pay Equity Adjustment
Effective December 22, 2021, existing employees in a unit shall receive a salary adjustment to match the step of the newly hired employee where:
- the new employee is hired on or after the date of signing this Amendment; and
- the step of the new employee is higher than an existing employee in the same unit, grade, and classification; and
- the higher step of the new employee is due to market conditions, as determined by the Appointing Authority.
For the purposes of this section, a unit is defined as a group of employees under the direct
supervision of the same supervisor.
Steps will not be adjusted if the newly hired employee’s step is higher due to exceptional
qualifications, as determined by the Appointing Authority.
