Re:                  SX and EX July 2014 Step Increases

As I believe you are aware, both the SX and EX bargaining units will receive a step increase this July.  The effective date for BW paid employees is July 6, 2014.  The effective date for MO paid employees is July 1, 2014.

The Web Merit process will begin Friday, June 6, 2014.  The entire process will be handled centrally by Human Resources.  The only action we ask of departments is to review the final EDB updates AFTER the EDB update takes place on the evening of June 13th.  At that time, please confirm that all your staff in the SX and EX bargaining units received a step increase.


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.
