using the aaup salary rate calculator
Using the AAUP Salary Rate Calculator

  • Find the comparator salary rate by rank and discipline in the “Salary Comparator” sheet
  • Input that rate to “Comparator Salary” field
  • Input PSU and Peer OPE rates by rank
using the aaup salary rate calculator1
Using the AAUP Salary Rate Calculator
  • Type Minimum rate by rank and year in appropriate fields
  • Merit increase: Either 0% or 2.5%.
  • To calculate:
    • Press “F9” on a PC
    • Press “Command + =” on a Mac
combining the new rate with a promotion in rank
Combining the New Rate with a Promotion in Rank
  • HR calculates the increases for individuals who are promoted in rank each year.
  • Faculty who are tenure related do not need a new letter of offer when they are promoted.
  • The following formulas demonstrate how to find the new rate for your fixed-term promoted faculty who will need a new letter of offer for the 08/09 year.
effective dates
Effective Dates:
  • The negotiated increases will be made effective 1/1/08.
  • Promotional increases are calculated using the rate from 6/15/08 or 6/30/08.
  • Promotional increases become effective 9/16/08 or 7/01/08 depending on the individual’s term of service (9 or 12).
how 08 09 promotions are calculated
How 08/09 Promotions are Calculated
  • Find the individual’s 1/1/8 new annual salary rate using the AAUP calculator
  • Using Article 30 Section 6 of the AAUP Collective Bargaining Agreement, find the minimum salary adjustment for the individual’s new rank and term of service (9 or 12).
  • Add the two numbers from above together
  • Compare the Sum of Step 3 to the minimum Annual Salary Rate for the individual’s rank and term of service using Article 30 Section 4.
  • Whichever is greater becomes the individual’s rate for the new year.
  • Final AAUP salary calculator rate =
    • 9-mo Assoc Prof of Art $52,596
  • Minimum Salary Adjustment
    • 9-mo promoted to Assoc Prof = $3,294
  • Calculator Rate + Min Adjustment
    • $52,596 + $3,294 = $55,890
  • Min ASR for 9-mo Assoc Prof = $50,112
  • $55,890 becomes the individual’s new rate effective 9/16/08.
aft salary rate calculator based on article 12 of the psu aft 07 09 collective bargaining agreement
AFT Salary Rate CalculatorBased on Article 12 of the PSU/AFT 07/09 collective bargaining agreement
  • Maria Eldred
  • Academic Employment Manager
using the aft calculator
Using the AFT Calculator
  • Make sure you are on the right tab of the Excel Spreadsheet
    • Adjunct Instructional or Research
  • Start with the individual’s rate from 06/07
  • If adjunct instruction use one of the following
    • 06/07 per credit rate
    • 06/07 annual salary rate
    • Amount paid for a course & the number of credits for that course
why use an employee s 06 07 rate
Why use an employee’s 06/07 rate?
  • 06/07 was the last time we had a full year without a change in the collective bargaining agreement rates.
  • The PSU/AFT contract was only ratified in March but became effective in Winter term (retroactively implemented).
  • If an adjunct did not work in Spring 08, their most current per credit rate or annual salary rate could not be accurate on the letters of offer or in Banner.
what if they only started working for us in 07 08
What if they only started working for us in 07/08?
  • If an employee only started in the 07/08 fiscal or academic year you can use the tabs/worksheets titled “Instruction if started in 07/08” or “Research if started in 07/08”.
if you are interested
If you are interested…
  • The formula for each calculation can be found in three places:
    • AFT collective bargaining agreement in Art 12
    • April HRascals Power Point Presentation available through the HR website
    • below each cell in the AFT salary calculator
  • If at all possible, use the 06/07 rates.
special thanks to all those
Special Thanks to all those…
  • …who were able to put their summer contracts onto one letter instead of splitting them as in years past.
  • It saved a significant amount of time and effort for our employment & job entry team as well as for Research Accounting by reducing the volume of letters we received!
