In response to the Board of Supervisors’ approval, Louisiana State University at Alexandria employees will receive a salary adjustment for the first time in four years.
This is a merit adjustment and will be based on performance and work.
The one-time salary adjustment for LSUA employees will average 4% and will go into effect January 1, 2014. Continuation of this adjustment will depend on availability of funds based on enrollment goals being met this fall and spring. The adjustments are being self-funded by each campus through cost-cutting and other efficiencies implemented over the past few years.
The pay adjustments for classified employees must first be approved by the Louisiana Civil Service Commission. A proposal for approval will be submitted next week.
This is the first pay adjustment since 2008, it was announced at today's Board of Supervisors meeting, and the adjustments are system-wide with each campus determining the timeline, details, and amount of the pay adjustments.
"It is crucial that we do everything we can to address faculty and staff pay adjustments within our current budget limitations," said Interim Chancellor Paul Coreil. "We are very grateful for the support provided by the LSU Board of Supervisors and President Alexander to make this one-time adjustment become a reality."
