In 2008, the new contract provision changed the way we calculated Summer Session wages for all Academic Student Employees (ASE), except for those holding the title of GSI-Acting Instructor.
In order for an appointment to be approved and entered into UCPath, Summer Sessions must have received the signed Agreement. Please do not make any verbal promises to hire outside of this process, as they will not be honored by Summer Sessions.
A standard calculation based on the annual held in Spring is used to calculate their hourly rate (see Compensation Scale). In order to come up with the total number of hours, the department must determine how many hours the student will be working per week, then multiply that number by the number of weeks in the session. Use the formula shown in example below to calculate the total amount.
GSI A on Step I at $24.47/hr
Total Working Hours: 120 hrs
Total Summer Compensation*: $2,936.40 ($24.47 x 120)
*Total amount will be paid, as in previous years, in one or two payments.
It is very important to be as accurate as possible when calculating the number of work hours. We wish to avoid all possible workload disputes.
If a GSI taught a course in Summer Session 2007 and is teaching the same course in this year’s Summer Sessions, the GSI is paid either (1) the same amount paid for teaching the course in 2007 augmented by the amount of the general increase for 2007 (5%), 2008 (1.5%) and 2011 (2%) (no increases in 2012, 2013), or (2) the salary derived by using standard calculation method, whichever is higher.
If a GSI taught Sociology 3 in 2007, and that same GSI is scheduled to teach Sociology 2 this year, the above exception language would not apply.
