Eastern Kentucky University is setting aside a half million dollars to boost pay for well over a hundred employees. E-K-U President Michael Benson says the Step-in-Grade Program is being supported by monies freed up by budget reallocations. Those affected by the move include custodians, laborers, relocation specialists, groundskeepers, and repair technicians.
Of the 232 people currently employed with these classifications and titles, 155 will receive a salary increase through the program. Affected workers will be notified this month with pay adjustments retroactive to January first.
