5094 raise report form

It is infuriating that so many of us are facing delays in receiving communication from Rutgers and have had problems in receiving our hard-won negotiated raises since the contract was ratified. To assure that nothing is left to chance, we call on members to gather as much information possible about the extent of the pay errors caused by Rutgers and will update you all on any answers we get from our meeting with management on Friday, 9/15, and decide on next steps together (we’ll be scheduling membership meetings for the week of 9/24; watch your e-mail for details).

Please fill out this form if you think that your retro pay and raises from 2022 and 2023 are incorrect.

Here are some helpful notes as you fill out this form:

  1. For a number of questions, you will need to be familiar with accessing your “Compensation History” or “View Paycheck” in the my.Rutgers.edu portal. To find access the information needed to review this, you can go to the my.Rutgers.edu portal, the “My Paycheck” widget on the home screen and click on either “Compensation History” or “View Paycheck” to get to each. If that widget is missing, the same things can be found in the menu on the left on the “Employee Self Service” tab.’ The same information for changes prior to 2016 can be found on the “Banner Self Service” tab, under “Employee Services -> Current and Past Jobs” or “Employee Services -> Pay Information -> Pay Stub,” respectively.
  2. If you don’t know your current grade and step, confirm by clicking on the 7/1/2022 date in your Compensation History, which will show more details.
  3. Your Compensation History may be confusing because of the way that the changes have been made retroactively, so you may see your old and new salaries out of order in the compensation history based on when certain changes were entered. When reviewing your compensation history, ignore “Fiscal Days Change” lines entirely, which are only changes that adjust your daily rate of pay to match the number of fiscal days in a given year.
  4. Some people are seeing 3.999% increases instead of 4.000% increases when clicking on the 7/1/2022 salary increase. We believe this is due to all annual salaries being rounded to the nearest dollar, and the percentage difference then also being rounded to 3 significant digits, but we are confirming with management how this is calculated and the reason we have not seen this issue before.
  5. If you do not have an “Across-The-Board” change on 3/1/2022, you are likely in a grant or contract funded position that was not impacted by the fiscal emergency, and received this increase on 7/1/2021 instead. Confirm you have an “Across-the-Board” increase on 7/1/2021 instead, not a Step Progression; if so, use the salary from 7/1/2021 in place of 3/1/2022 for calculations related to the 4% 7/1/2022 increase.
