502.000 Procedure for Distribution of Merit Adjustment Funds and Grievances

The content of this page applies to UEA employees on the University of Minnesota, Duluth campus.


502.100 Procedures for Distribution of Merit Adjustment Funds.

 

The amount of a Member's merit adjustment as provided in Section 500.200 shall be recommended by the Member's department head or other academic unit head to the Principal Administrator. The Principal Administrator shall, in turn, make a recommendation to the appropriate Vice Chancellor, who shall determine the amount of a Member's merit adjustment, if any.

The merit recommendation process must provide an objective unbiased evaluation of each Member following a thorough review of his/her work. The process must encourage continued good or improved performance, which in turn, should be rewarded by the compensation system. Neither party shall use this description of the process as evidence or argument in arbitration nor shall it be grievable.

 

502.200 Grievability.

The Employer's decision to grant or deny any merit adjustment as provided in Section 500.200 shall be grievable only through Step Three (Section 801.330) of the Grievance Procedure provided by this Agreement.
