2018-19 Salary Recommendations & Resources Available
The UUA Office of Church Staff Finances team recently posted their Salary Recommendationsand related resources for the 2018-2019 year. Please note:
New for 2018-2019, the Geo Index Listing features a designation for areas with an especially high cost of living relative to cost of wages. (The Geo Index itself is based on cost of wages.)
You may recall that 2017-2018 was a "catch-up year," in which we held all recommendations steady to allow for thoughtful congregational review and adjustment of salaries with respect to our guidelines. Thus, the 4% increase in salaries for all positions in 2018-2019reflects changes in wages over a 2-year period.
The Guide to Salary Recommendations has been updated to provide a deeper understanding of our recommendations and how to use them in your context for new and continuing staff.
Look for our Compensation Worksheet, modified for greater flexibility, which helps congregational leaders ensure that they are properly budgeting for benefits.
Feel free to contact Jan Gartner, email@example.com, UUA Compensation and Staffing Practices Manager, with questions about your own compensation or that of your staff.
