Announcing Salary Increases for Policy-Covered Employees

Campus PolicyFaculty and Staff

Chancellor Block and EVCP Hunt sent the following message to the UCLA Bruin Community.

Dear Colleagues:

We are very pleased to announce salary increases for all eligible, policy-covered staff employees and academic employees. UCLA’s employees are the ones who, day in and day out, drive forward our mission of teaching, research and service. We deeply value this opportunity to recognize your hard work, dedication, ingenuity and collaboration.

The University of California intends to provide a general 4.6% salary increase for eligible, policy-covered staff employees and academic employees. Importantly, this increase is contingent on UC receiving its full funding as allocated in the State of California’s 2023-24 budget, and thus could be subject to change. In the event that budget expectations are altered, we will provide an update to employees.

For staff on bi-weekly payroll, increases will be effective June 25, 2023; and for those paid monthly, increases will be effective July 1, 2023. Guidelines and eligibility criteria for policy-covered staff have been issued to departments and are available on the Campus Human Resources website. You may also reach out to your local HR teams for more information.
All eligible, policy-covered academic appointees will receive a 4.6% increase in the on-scale component of their salaries. This adjustment to the academic salary scales will be effective Oct. 1, 2023 for policy-covered faculty and effective July 1, 2023 for other policy-covered academic appointees. Details about off-scale and above scale salary components for policy-covered faculty are still being determined and will be shared in the weeks ahead.

Please note that salary increases for exclusively union-represented employees are governed by their respective collective bargaining unit agreements, which are separate from this salary plan.

We are happy to share this news as we head into the closing weeks of the academic year. No matter what role or title an employee might have, that person is contributing to our university in important ways and helping to advance its vital mission. Thank you for your many efforts to bring to life the power and promise of UCLA.
