Tips for new Electronic Time-Clarification

Dear Colleagues,

You should have all received this announcement about the transition to
the new electronic time sheets. We have received questions about holiday
comp time.  While the bullet below “encourages” employees to “use any
earned holidays up first so we do not have many to carry over to the
electronic system”, we just want to clarify/remind you  that under
Article 23. 5 d of the Contract, you have one year from the day you
accrue the holiday comp day to use it.

Tom Tucker, president
UUP Buffalo Center Chapter

As we move ahead with the new time and attendance – eTime- we have some
advice and info from HR

*        We will be using the end of November balances to load into the
new system.  Please make sure timesheets are up to date.

*        Please use any earned holidays up first so we do not have many
to carry over to electronic system.

*        Training sessions for faculty and staff will begin in December
– January. There will be online training.

*        Supervisors will begin training sessions in late November for
attendance policy and then online training sessions.

*        Adjunct instructors will still be using paper timesheets- I
will have further info in the next few weeks

*        RF employees will be joining the system also.

*        Practice using your log in by checking your paystub-your time
and attendance will be in that same application.

In preparation, all impacted individuals can practice accessing where
the Time and Attendance system will reside.  We encourage everyone to
sign on to view your paycheck.  If you view your paycheck, you will be
going to the same place where you will be able to access the time and
attendance system after the holidays.  Please use this link to access

Contractual pay raises due

We’re all getting a raise.

Two percent across-the-board salary increases will appear in July 29 paychecks for calendar-year or college-year obligation employees . Academic-year employees will be getting their 2 percent salary increases in September.

Bargaining unit members on the payroll as of June 30 (and at the time of payment) will also receive an additional increase of $500 added to their base salaries. This increase must be paid by Dec. 31, 2015. A payment date will soon be announced.

Also, Discretionary Salary Awards (DSA) will be allocated no later than Dec. 31 by campus presidents, who will decide when and how to distribute those funds. DSA will not be added to base salary. A portion of DSA money at every campus will be earmarked for part-time employees.

UUP secured these salary increases through hard-fought negotiations with the state. They are guaranteed in UUP’s 2011-16 contract with the state.

For more information on the raises and DSA, please click here.
