Motion: Salary Grievances

Boulder Faculty Assembly
Faculty Affairs Committee Motion:
Salary Grievances

BFA-M-1-0202

  1. In any given year, faculty may file performance evaluation grievances and/or salary grievances with their department salary grievance committee, which shall be separate from the committee that determines salaries. Given that salary information is often not available until May or June, grievance committees that find in favor of the plaintiff may not be able to effect a material change until the following year.

  2. Current salary grievance procedures allow for faculty to grieve career salary inequities, but not annual merit awards. Current policy does not define how long a salary inequity must persist for it to be a career salary inequity. For the purpose of defining "career salary grievance," a career salary inequity may be defined as an alleged inequity of two or more years' duration. A career salary grievance may be filed with the department salary grievance committee, which shall be separate from the committee that determines salaries.
