Re: Important Information for Clerical Employee Payroll
Please note that the recent biweekly payroll included a one-time payment of $17.00 for eligible clerical employees. This one-time payment is related to a settlement agreement reached between the University and Teamsters-IBT to resolve concerns related to the increase in the UCRP payment on June 22, 2014.
Pursuant to the current UC-CUE (Teamsters-IBT) Agreement, Teamsters expected the increase to be effective on July 1, 2014. However, any implementation dates for changes to biweekly payroll, like UCRP, have to tie to a biweekly pay schedule. As a result of the June 22nd implementation of the UCRP increase, Teamsters filed grievances alleging a violation of the agreement. The University believes the UCRP increase implementation was consistent with the terms of the agreement but agreed to provide eligible clerical unit employees with a one-time payment of $17 to resolve the dispute. The UCRP settlement is available on the HR web site at: http://www.hr.ucsb.edu/labor-relations/union-contracts
