2019-2020 Pay Program

Dear Colleagues:

I am pleased to announce a salary increase plan for University of Florida faculty and staff and an increase in the university’s minimum wage.

This year, for employees on payroll as of June 30, 2019, the university will implement a 1% across-the-board increase and an additional 2% salary increase pool for merit and market-based increases based on criteria established by colleges and units.  Both the across-the-board increase as well as any merit or market increases will be awarded effective October 1, 2019.

The university’s minimum wage for TEAMS employees will increase from $13 to $14 per hour, also effective October 1.  The campus has made significant progress in increasing the minimum wage over the past several years.

Additional details regarding the eligibility criteria and the process for implementing the salary increases will be forthcoming from UF Human Resources.

Salary increases for employees in a bargaining unit, including the minimum wage increase, are subject to union negotiation.  We are committed to working with the unions to reach agreement for covered employees.

Providing competitive market and merit-based compensation is an important part of our strategy as we pursue UF’s goal to be one of the nation’s top-5 public research universities.  UF has exceptional faculty and staff.  Your commitment to excellence is deeply appreciated by our university’s leadership and our Board of Trustees.

Warm Regards,

Kent Fuchs
University of Florida
