SU staff to see bonuses in November
BATON ROUGE - Southern employees working in the system office and on the Baton Rouge and Shreveport campuses will receive an extra $1,000 in their November paychecks.
The single supplemental payment comes at a time when Southern administrators say they've turned a corner after weathering five straight years of state budget cuts.
Southern University President Ronald Mason says the pay hikes are part of a plan to stabilize and rebuild the Southern brand.
Following a rare Saturday meeting of Southern's Board of Supervisors, Mason said he hopes the salary increases and supplemental pay will boost morale on all of Southern's campuses.
