Salary ranges involve a number of factors: local, state, or national prevailing salary rates, internal relationships to other related classifications, and negotiated bargaining agreements.
Currently, two different salary structures for staff positions exist in the campus system: positions with steps (step-based) and graded positions with open ranges. All bargaining unit (represented) positions are on steps. With the exception of Police Sergeants #5313U, all non-represented positions are in graded, open salary ranges.
Bargaining unit title codes (represented) are always 4 numbers followed by a "C." For example, 8199C Painter. Non-represented positions—those covered by Personnel Policies for Staff Members – PPSM have title codes 4 numbers followed by a "U" (for example, 7547U Fundraiser 3).
