UUP Discretionary Awards
Letters from President Conway-Turner notifying UUP employees that they will receive a discretionary award were mailed on Monday, November 9. UUP employees who did not receive an award letter are reminded that they may appeal the decision by Tuesday, November 17, 2015, as follows:
Any eligible faculty or professional staff member who is not notified by the president of an award by the designated date should assume that his or her name is not on the preliminary list. Employees not scheduled for an award, and employees dissatisfied with the amount of their awards, may file an appeal with the Appeals Board. Reminder: self-nominations are not required to be eligible to appeal.
The Appeals Board includes the president, provost, vice presidents, CIO, deans, and other administrative staff members selected by the president. The board will consider written appeals of no more than 600 words. The board meets in closed session, and testimony or personal appeals will be by invitation only.
Written appeals, addressed to the president, must be delivered to the President’s Office by 5:00 p.m. Tuesday, November 17, 2015. Copies (not originals) of the appeal must also be provided to the associate vice president for human resource management (secretary to the Appeals Board) and to the appropriate vice president, dean, director, and department chair.
Appeal candidates will be notified of the outcome of the appeal by November 24, 2015. Discretionary awards will be reflected in the paychecks dated December 16, 2015.
