UW–Madison expects to provide a 2 percent wage increase early next year to employees under the 2021–2023 pay plan. The state’s legislative Joint Committee on Employment Relations (JCOER) still needs to formally approve the pay plan increases. The 2 percent increase is anticipated to take effect Jan. 2, 2022.
