|Re:||Compensation Update for SRAs and RAs (Limited Term)|
As outlined in my recent memos, the Business Board has approved compensation increases for Research Associates and Senior Research Associates, effective April 1, 2012.
Based on our assessment of the new restraint measures in the 2012 Provincial Budget, it is our view that we may proceed to implement the approved increases. The Across-the-Board (ATB) adjustment is retroactive to April 1, 2012 and will be included in your May pay. Given that you have not received an ATB increase for three years, we are pleased that we are now able to implement one.
Business Board also approved merit adjustments, effective July 1, 2012. Details about the merit increase will be provided in a separate memo.
Should you have any questions about this update, please contact your Divisional Human Resources Office.
