Full-Year Service Salary Increases, $4,202,000
Service-based Salary Increases (SSI) are implemented on eligible employee anniversary dates that occur throughout the fiscal year. Therefore, the SSI compensation costs incurred in the first year are less than full-year costs. The remaining full-year costs are mandatory obligations in the subsequent year. While not all 2007/08 collective bargaining agreements are final to date, the 2008/09 budget plan includes an estimated $4.2 million to cover the full-year costs of 2007/08 SSI that may be implemented.
