Pay Increase Planned for Night and Weekend Employees
UW–Madison employees who work second or third shift receive additional compensation when they work nights between 6 p.m. and 6 a.m. or weekends between 12:01 a.m. on Saturday and midnight on Sunday. This additional compensation, known as “differential pay,” will increase beginning November 12, 2017. The differential will increase from $0.45 to $0.80 per hour for hours worked at night and from $0.60 to $0.80 per hour for weekend hours worked. In announcing the increase, UW–Madison administrators stated that they appreciate the hard work and contributions of second- and third-shift workers to the mission of the university.
