Update on payment of salary increases for promotion, professional advancement, and Excellence Awards from fall 2014

Greetings to everyone promoted last year and to those who received excellence awards.

Don’t let this Targeted get lost in your inbox and congratulations on the good work!


In previous years, promotions, professional advancement increases, and Excellence Award increases were not paid by Northeastern until contract negotiations had ended and new contracts were ratified.

In collaboration with the UPI Leadership, the Administration is moving away from this practice.

Faculty who would have expected to receive salary increases due to promotion, professional advancement, and Excellence Awards during fall 2014 will see the salary increases reflected either in today’s paycheck, or in the forthcoming February 15, 2015 paycheck.
