4 percent salary increase for WSU faculty, staff



PULLMAN — Washington State University faculty and staff will receive a 4 percent salary increase, effective Jan. 1.

WSU President Elson Floyd announced the raise Wednesday on his blog. He says it’s the first pay raise since 2008, outside of step increases for civil service employees.

Executive Vice President Dan Bernardo told The Moscow-Pullman Daily News the raise would make up some ground lost in salary freezes and help retain top faculty members.
