Administrative Support Raises: 2.4% 2011-12; 0.8% 2012-13

Administrative Support staff are also getting raises---assuming the board will approve these tomorrow nite.
 Administrative Support Staff Salary & Benefits

This employee group will be responsible for the employee share of the WRS upon the full implementation
of the Budget Repair Bill and/or July 1, 2011, whichever is sooner.

The Management Team has conferred with representatives from the administrative support group and
recommends the following changes to the salary and benefit plan:
  1. Freeze the current salary schedule at the 2010-2011 level for 2011-2012 and 2012 2013 school years, while allowing for individual employees to make step movement. This is equivalent to an average increase of 1.6% salary over the next two years (2.4% year one and 0.8% year two).
  2. Increase the employee’s health insurance contribution up to 9% with a health risk assessment and 10% without a health risk assessment (up from 5%/9%). The benefit changes (when combined with WRS) will result in an overall savings to the district of 10.3%.
  3. Allow employees the option to request a pay out of up to 3 days of reimbursable time per semester.
  4. Increase the cap on the number of years of longevity from 20 to 25 years when calculating retirement benefits. Allow employees the option of participating in a premium only Health Reimbursement Account (HRA) for qualifying plans in lieu of using their retirement funds to stay on the district’s health and/or dental plans.
Given the above changes the employees in this group will see a decrease in their take home pay ranging
from 3.08% for someone who does not take insurance to 5.49% for an individual with family insurance.

Awwwwww...geeeee.  Cry us a frickin' river!  The average state employee will see an 8 to 10% DECREASE in pay EACH year.  Raises: ZERO.  Grid movement: Non-existent.  Oh...wait...the POSSIBILITY exists that in fiscal 2013 that raises UP TO the Consumer Price Index COULD be granted.
