Dear Members,

I had requested that Human Resources contact PSU first before sending out any communication to the campus on changing the projected payment dates.

I have just received notice from Juan Jarrett, Assistant Vice Chancellor for Human Resources that they will not make the November 17th pay date to set the new base salary rates for eligible staff (PSU Unit A).

Juan Jarrett has expressed his disappointment that despite the mandatory overtime worked by his staff. Human Resources has to move the date for establishing the new base salary rates for eligible PSU staff.  He has given me his my complete assurance that paying these salary increases has been and continues to be the top priority for payroll and total compensation staff.  

HR will set the new base salary rates and pay the retroactive portions of the salary increases all in the December 1st pay check
