Not close to what the UO Foundation’s been giving CEO Paul Weinhold, but if this is accurate more than I’d thought. [Update: It’s not accurate. Read the comments.] Jordyn Brown in the RG here:
The universities’ bargaining unit is proposing a cost of living increase of 2.5% over two years, along with regular pay steps for the first year and delayed step increases for six months after salary eligibility. They are not offering new steps for longtime employees who have topped out on pay.
This represents a 12% increase in wages over two years, said Di Saunders, spokesperson for Oregon’s public universities. The increases proposed by the union add up to about an 18% increase.
