Hello Everyone –

The PPS Freeze for the CX, PA, and SX 3% Range Adjustments (July 2014) is over!  The range adjustments for CX, PA, and SX are complete and you may once again input data into the EDB.

Please check the CX, PA, and SX employees in your departments to double confirm that the pay rates were increased for all eligible employees – there is no web merit roster for these increases.  If there are any issues, please contact me so we can make any and all corrections before the pay windows close.

HOWEVER – PLEASE REMEMBER that the PPS Freeze for SX and EX Step Increases begins at 3:00 p.m. on Friday, June 6, 2014.  I know, I know…that is not much time between the end of one freeze and the start of another.  Unfortunately, as I believe you are all aware, there are several wage implementations in the works and in order to get everything completed prior to the effective dates we need these PPS Freeze windows.

As a reminder the Web Merit schedule for the SX and EX 1-Step Increase is as follows:.


June 6 – 5:00 p.m. PPS freeze begins for SX/EX

June 6 – Preliminary Rosters are run (evening)

June 9 – 10 - HR review of Preliminary Roster

June 10 – Second run of Preliminary Roster (evening)

June 11 - 12 – HR review of second run of Preliminary Roster

June 12 – Final Roster (evening)

June 13 – HR review of Final Roster (completed by 3:00 p.m.)

June 13 – EDB update (evening)

June 16 – 8:00 a.m. PPS freeze ends for SX/EX

June 16 – Departments review final EDB updates for accuracy.

Information regarding the CX 1 and 2 Step Longevity Increases and the 99 3% General Salary Increase will follow shortly.  In the meantime, if you have any questions, please contact me at Ext. 4068 or

Thank you for all of your help!
