Pay Bands for Staff Positions

The broad pay bands that correspond to the staff job categories have been designed to allow considerable flexibility in managing pay, while maintaining market-competitive pay opportunities. The pay bands are broad enough to support pay decisions in a wide variety of circumstances. Therefore, it is SU’s policy that no staff member will be paid below the minimum or above the maximum of the pay band. There will be no exceptions made for paying below the minimum.
