For HR Administrators
Human Resources and Finance are preparing to implement CUPE 2950 general wage increase, 2% across all jobs, retroactive to April 1, 2012.
Our target date is for the Nov 30, 2012, payroll date for the increase, including the retro payments.
The mass increase will be implemented in HRMS this week for salaried employees and a few days later for hourly employees.
Once this is implemented:
Until the new rates are entered in HRMS (scheduled date is Nov. 15/16), all systems will continue to pick up old rates.
Once the new rates are in HRMS, then these systems will immediately start using the new rates.
Until the new rates are entered in HRMS, job postings will continue to have the old rates.
Once the new rates are in HRMS, new job postings will have the new rates, but existing job postings will still have the old rates
Until the new rates are entered in HRMS, job offers will be submitted at the old rates. The mass salary increase program will update their rates, together with all existing eligible employees. Once the new rates are in HRMS, job offers will be submitted with new rates.
The April 1, 2013 GWI (also 2%) will be implemented in April next year.
