2.  A PTL who taught as a PTL in at least one of the two previous semesters, including those in PALS, will receive increases to their base salary rate as set forth in paragraphs IV.B.1.a. through f. above. 

 

3.  If an individual PTL bargaining unit member’s salary rate is less than the appropriate minimum set forth in paragraphs IV.A.1.a. through d. above, the member’s salary will be increased to the appropriate minimum.

 

4.  The revision in the above salary rates will not result in a decrease in the per-course salary rate of any current bargaining unit member.

 

5.  Co-teachers shall be paid a pro-rata share according to the division of teaching responsibilities and according to Articles IVA and IVB of the contract and the number of credits for the course, but no less than the minimum per credit base salary rate for one credit.

 

6.  All unit members teaching during Academic Year 2012-2013 will receive a one-time lump sum payment of $150 in either the Fall 2012 or Spring 2013, including PALS, whichever semester is the first taught by the PTL during the academic year. 

 

C. An individual PTL bargaining unit member may be paid above her/his base salary rate at any time, due to special circumstances, as a specified increase which does not establish a new base salary rate. If the department determines that special circumstances warrant a higher salary, it will inform the PTL in writing of the special circumstances at the time of appointment.

     Nothing in this provision shall be construed as a maximum or restriction on the base salary rate of an individual PTL. 

             

 

D.  An individual who was employed as a PTL in one semester, including the semester of employment prior to ratification, who is offered employment as a PTL during the term of this Agreement, will not be offered a salary less than she/he received in the earlier semester, unless the PTL is appointed to teach a significantly different course, or unless the PTL had been paid above her/his base salary rate due to special circumstances as provided in item C above.

 

E.   If, through no fault of the PTL, a course is canceled within seven (7) days before the date on which the class was scheduled to begin, or seven (7) days after the date on which the class began, and the University determines not to reassign the PTL to another course, the PTL will receive 1/16th of the salary for the semester. A PTL in the PALS Program who is appointed for a 14-week period will receive 1/14th the salary for that 14-week period; a PTL appointed for a 7-week period in accordance with the Recognition Article will receive 1/7th the salary for that 7-week period.

 

Additionally, if the PTL has taught classes during the seven (7) day period after the date on which the classes began or were scheduled to begin, the PTL will be paid a pro-rata salary for the work performed.

 

 

F. If the official course enrollment, that is the enrollment at the conclusion of the drop/add period, exceeds the approximate enrollment contained in the appointment letter by 33-1/3% or 25 students, whichever is lower, the PTL shall receive a salary supplement of $200 per credit, or a salary supplemtn of 15% for PALS instructors.  This supplement shall not apply if the excess enrollment is due to the Part-Time Lecturer giving a special permission number(s) to a student(s) for enrollment in the course, unless the Part-Time Lecturer was expressly directed to do so by the Department. 

 

G.        Nothing in this Article IV shall be construed as a maximum or restriction on the base salary rate of an individual PTL.

 

 

H.          PTLs may avail themselves of direct deposit of salary checks.
