Article 25 - Wages

25.1 Increment Increases.
Employees will receive an annual salary adjustment on their periodic increment date until such time as the employee reaches the top step of the salary range. Employees shall continue to receive increment increases at the rate of two (2) steps each twelve (12) months unless they are newly hired at step A, in which case they will receive a two (2) step increase at six (6) months then two (2) steps annually thereafter.

25.2 Increment Adjustments.
In support of the Department's efforts to strengthen police officer retention, employees at step E shall receive three (3) steps on their annual increment date.

25.3 Base Wage Rate Adjustment:

  1. Effective July 1, 2015 all employees base wage rates shall be increased by three percent (3%). This increase is only effective during the 2015-2017 contract term.
  2. A three percent (3%) Lump Sum payment in first pay period of July 2015 based upon the new 2015 rate above for 2080 hours worked from June 30, 2014 through July 1, 2015. Officers must be in the bargaining unit continuously from ratification or hire until the time of payment to be eligible.
  3. Effective July 1, 2016 all employees base wage rates shall be increased by two percent (2%). This increase is only effective during the 2015-2017 contract term.
  4. A four percent (4%) Lump Sum payment in the first pay period of July 2016 based upon the new 2016 rate above for 2080 hours worked from July 1, 2015 through July 1, 2016. Officers must be in the bargaining unit continuously from ratification or hire until the time of payment to be eligible.

For the period extending from July 1, 2015, to June 30, 2017, increases will be funded out of University funds rather than state appropriated funds and will therefore not be included as part of the base wage rate after conclusion of the contract. Base wage increases must be bargained and approved under RCW 41.80 going forward.
