LSU announces wage increases for faculty & staff
BATON ROUGE - A number of employees at LSU could soon be seeing a pay bump.
According to a letter sent out to faculty and staff by University President F. King Alexander Friday, LSU is providing a three-percent merit raise pool for each department, from which staff can receive additional pay based on their performance.
The effective dates for the pay raise will be Sept. 1 for fiscal year and professional hourly employees and Sept. 15 for employees paid on an academic year basis.
Alexander credited the extra pay to a successful end to the legislative sessions of 2018, strong enrollment numbers and additional student investments.
