Re:       RX and TX (UPTE) October 2014 3% Range Adjustment


Hello Everyone -

Sorry for the short notice, but here we are again…range adjustments!

This memo sets out the specific schedules for the 3% range adjustment process for RX and TX (UPTE) employees.  The process started last night, Monday, September 8, 2014, with the first run of the RX roster.  The first run of the TX roster is scheduled for tonight, Tuesday, September 9, 2014.

Unlike the step increases in July 2014, this process does not require the departments to make any entries via the PPS Web Merit system or really do anything.  The entire process will be handled centrally.  The only action we ask departments to take is AFTER the EDB update (the evening of September 12), is to please review yours PPS roster and confirm that all of your RX and TX employees were properly included in the range adjustment.

The effective date for these 3% range adjustments are as follows: 

  1. Monthly paid employees – October 1, 2014 (with pay on October 31, 2014).
  2. Bi-Weekly paid employees – October 12, 2014 (with pay on November 5, 2014).

3% Range Adjustment Schedule

September 8, 2014 – the PPS Freeze begins and the preliminary RX roster will be run (evening).

September 9, 2014 – the Preliminary TX roster to be run (evening).

September 9 through 11, 2014 – HR’s review of the preliminary rosters and necessary corrections.

September 11, 2014 – second run of the rosters (evening).

September 12, 2014 – HR’s final review of the rosters and any final corrections.

September 12, 2014 – EDB update (evening).

September 15, 2014 – PPS Freeze concludes and Departments review PPS to confirm the accuracy of the updates.
