To recognize and reward members of the bargaining unit for outstanding performance or the completion of the College’s Leadership Development Program, the Community College agrees to establish a special project bonus pool in the amount of $23,184 for each year of the agreement. Members will be eligible to receive a one time, lump sum bonus of $1,000 or $2,000, not accruing to their salary base, and paid out in the year for which the award is approved.
The CCRIPSA member will develop and submit a project proposal to his/her department director/chairperson. The department director/chairperson and the divisional Vice President will review each proposal and determine those for which they recommend approval and those for which approval is not recommended. All of the recommendations will then be submitted for approval to a committee composed of the three divisional Vice Presidents of their designees and two (2) members of the CCRIPSA. At that time, the Committee will also assign one of the above bonus increment amounts to each approved proposal. Upon completion of the project as approved, the bargaining unit member will submit the appropriate documentation of that fact to the above Committee for final approval of a project bonus increment.
Each project must be submitted in writing by the above deadlines. A project should be designed to allow its completion by the last day of May of the fiscal year in which it has begun. Members should design projects which will accomplish a task or goal that is of benefit to the incumbent’s department or to the College in general. The project cannot be one of the incumbent’s normally assigned responsibilities. The time needed to work on the project is not subject to the overtime or leave clauses contained within the bargaining unit agreement.
